  • We drove through the gardens, you can drive or walk. Beware, there are numerous alligators everywhere. We saw one as soon as we entered sunning itself on the bank. The amazing oak trees look like...

  • Great outdoor experience. We enjoyed driving the jungle garden with many birds, alligators & turtles. The Buddha is interesting, as is the historical aspects of the park. You are in nature, so keep...

  • What a AMAZING unexpected visit! Mr. McIlenny did a wonderful job creating this sanctuary, gathering exotic plants and trees. The self-guided driving tour is easy to follow, with plenty of short trails to wander around and enjoy the peaceful gardens. You can download the free app to listen to the audio tour. We didn't get to see alligators as it was still cold for them in February. I think we spent over 2 hours and half in the park. It was getting dark when we left. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children. If you do the Tabasco factory the Jungle Gardens is included in your $12.50 admission. I definitely recommend this visit!
  • It's an amazing place! You can easily spend 3 or more hours! There are no restaurants or restroom during the circuit, I recommend take a repellent and some water to drink on the way! You can park your car and walk or drive and make some stops, it's an amazing place but please be careful! Those that have children don't let them walk away alone, have some alligator, spiders and a lot of wild life, all very relaxing and don't disturb nobody, but don't make so easy! Definitely go, don't think twice because of this, just careful!!
