We stopped here, expecting botanical experiences. Let me lower your expectations. The most horticultural learning you will get here consists entirely of a few posts with plant and tree identification. The highlight of the hike was seeing a large green iguana. Other than that, there...More

A very strange, empty, and somewhat creepy “park” with crumbling asphalt road-trails that turn into swampy dirt paths through unfriendly-feeling tropical vegetation. Nothing to do really, except maybe for sitting down on the banks of small lake-like feature along one of the trails. I mean,...More

Made the mistake of choosing this park as a stop on our way back from Key West to Miami. After 15 minutes of walking we realized that this once upon a time must have been nice. It reminded me of a large backyard that lost...More

It is a good place to go if you are just looking for a trail to hike. We couldn't do the whole trail since a section of it was covered by water.

I never saw anything like this under name "Botanical Garden". Even with a free parking and just $2.5 fee you put in envelop and leave in a special box. Wild thickets with a series of posts. Absolute desolation and a sense of hopelessness.

I agree with the other reviews this park is basically abandoned. The trails are poorly marked so even if you attempt to follow with the available park map you get lost. I did find the pond and was able to photograph an iguana that swam...More

It was a very quiet stroll through the park, and the land topography was interesting-the tree hammock led into the mangrove area, and at low tide we walked across the stone path to get to the other side of the hammock to loop around to...More

We were interested in seeing wildlife and tried this park but the map was poorly designed and there was no information about what might be of interest of what we could potentially see, such as interesting flora and fauna, environmental interest details, etc. We walked...More

Pets are welcome at Florida State Parks on a leash. Just make sure you stay on the trails and bring plenty of bug spray. State parks in the Florida Keys have been impacted by hurricane Irma, so if you're planning a visit, go... More

There is a one mile loop and a 2 mile loop. The full loop is sometimes partially under water. As far as level goes, well, this is the keys, so its flat. This park is taken care of by John Pennekamp State Park, so you have to... More
