We like this place a lot! You can stroll around and have a nice time since the pathways are very well shadowed! There's a splash area and a petting zoo (I've only seen it on weekends) for the kids and a section where you can have a birthday party! We got to see the farmers market on Sunday and it's quite nice! The entrance is 5 dls for adults, which I don't think it's that bad. Don't forget to bring your water! Totally recommend!
Great gardens and brilliant staff. We were caught in a thunderstorm during a Birthday party and the staff were kind enough to let us use the sheltered (kind of) butterfly garden. The butterfly shelter probably needs some investment to protect it better from the elements though especially given the type of thunderstorms you get in Miami. Overall though this is a wonderful gardens. Must visit if you are local to Miami!
