Stopped by right before it rained so we went fast. It is very small but pretty. Bonsais were great although repetitive. Staff was friendly as was the resident cat that made us feel at home.

A perfect gem in a small town,the Sunrise Theater. Offers big-name acts in a small town setting. The seats are always perfect and they even have a bar, what more could you ask for!

Stunning gardens laid out so nicely... took our grandchildren and got wonderful photos as the gardens are so beautiful, made wonderful settings and backdrops. The garden had a lego exhibit that the adults liked better than the children

I waited over a year of moving in to the area before visiting Heathcote, and was very pleasantly surprised at what I found there! The Bonsai garden is rated as one of the best and biggest in the U.S.! I immediately became a volunteer there.

Easy one hour stroll through varied Florida fauna. Extensive bonsai section. Good places for sitting, contemplating and perhaps a picnic. There is a charge but a discount for seniors. Veterans are free (with ID). Children under 6 free also. ***Great location for outdoor weddings!!!

Absolutely loved this small botanical garden! First and foremost, when planning a visit, please do not expect, nor compare it to some of the larger gardens in Florida or beyond (i.e. McKee, Bok Tower, Harry P. Leu, Morikami, etc.). It is on the smaller side...More

This botanical garden is small but has a large bonsai exhibit. The day we were there, they were setting up for a wedding. We were there for about an hour. This is a worthwhile stop if you are in the Fort Pierce area.

This is a delightful place to visit. Excellent displays of plants, flowers, trees. Large Japanese garden and bonsai exhibit. They have regular events during the year.

We have been there many times. The gardens are quaint. It is a work in progress. Christmas brings about a night time activity. The garden glows in lights. Cleverly displayed. Even children will enjoy. I hope it expands. Wheel chair accessible. Cost is minimal.
