A completely free attraction located next to the beach, the grounds of this attraction are well shielded by large trees and are filled with a wide variety of tropical and semi-tropical plants. There is almost always a bit of a breeze off the ocean, so it's cool even on hot days, and it's also extremely peaceful as well. We found... More

While walking along the beach we came upon this walled in garden. It's a great little spot to see local foliage and has some shady spots with seating to escape the hot sun. There is not charge but donations to the garden club are encouraged. We spent about 30 minutes there and would do it again.

Walking through this garden was peaceful and quiet. Enjoyed seeing the plantings and butterflies in the butterfly garden.

Very interesting adaptive reuse of an old fort. Some unusual plants, nice paths and seating areas. Worth the time if you are in the area.

This is a lovely garden, both secluded and open to the ocean beyond. A very pleasant place to stroll and admire plants and artful scenery. We had a small private wedding here, and it was a fabulous location. Made for an extremely memorable occasion. Everyone there was so nice. This is a volunteer operation with strong dedication and commitment to... More

This is an absolute gem. We stumbled upon it one day while we were just out exploring. The admission fee is a donation, and it is so worth the donation. It's absolutely gorgeous with, stunning views of the ocean. The place is very well kept, and is a hidden gem of Key West. If you have an extra 30 minutes... More

We wandered in here on a Sunday morning and were treated to beautiful orchids, towering trees and flowers, plants and cacti of every kind. There are lovely paths that run along the beach and the canopy of trees over the garden gives cool shade. It's a delightful place and a must see in my book.
