  • A beautiful place to pass an hour or so contemplating the exotic tropical flowers and trees. The place appears to be run by volunteers so everyone is friendly and keen to answer any questions you may ...  more »
  • Built on a combination of mainland and small islands into the Gulf of Mexico, just south of down town Naples, this mostly volunteer-run beautifully place is well worth the drive and time spent walking...  more »

  • Beautifully maintained flowers, trees, and plants from around the world: orchid garden, Caribbean, desert/cacti, Asian garden, & more. Streams, numerous waterfalls, lily pad pond, and a small lake with a winding nature trail. There are sculptures on exhibit along the wheelchair friendly trails. There's a play area for kids and a butterfly house. The cafe on site has tasty, basic fare, coffee, & beverages and a number of bathrooms are available around the site. The beautiful gift shop is a little museum in itself, full of artwork and unique gifts. The parking lot is large with spaces considerate of folks with disabilities. The entrance to the gardens & ticketing area is a low incline ramp. You can spend a day here with the family soaking in the natural beauty. Plant species are labeled, so it's an excellent educational opportunity for kids as well as adults. Ticket price per person isn't cheap, but not unreasonable, especially since you can go early, eat lunch at the cafe (very fair prices) and make the most of your visit. Those who wish to visit more frequently can become members and save on ticket prices.
  • We went to night lights only but it was fantastic! Everything was beautifully done. Things were well organized with volunteers throughout the gardens and multiple drink stations. They also had live entertainment and illuminated lawn furniture for lounging and listening. The gift shop is really nice and reasonably priced too!
  • OMG Beautiful light festival during the month of December. My wife and I have been there two years in a row. Naples Botanical Garden is absolutely lovely at any time of the day or year. Well worth a visit to make many wonderful memories! Take the time to visit, it is SO worth it!
  • We went to the christmas light special and it was awesome. The lights are beautiful and are so cool to look at. Dress warm though Naples can be cold during the winter. Also if you're a fan of Pokemon Go there are great pokemon and lots of poke stops.
  • A lovely place to visit. Not the biggest, but loads of plants, lakes, water features, statues, a small butterfly exhibit, and more. Good facilities. Would be spectacular at night during Christmas.
