It was amazing to see the amount of hard work volunteers put into this place; especially recovering after a hurricane. It was still beautiful, but hearing of some of the trees and plants they lost I'm sure it was even more beautiful before the hurricane...More

A very nice garden that took quite a hit from Hurricane Irma! It is worth a visit and a donation to help continue the great work!

This place is definitely worth visiting, especially if you are looking for a nice place to just relax and take in what Key West has to offer. This place is small, but beautiful. You get a nice view of the water from this place.
