"Great escape from the big theme parks"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

I totally agree with the other positive reviews. I'll single out birds of prey as one of my favorite areas of the park as I didn't see them mentioned specifically. Also there are numerous impressive and unusual large old trees. I'm talking 100 to 200 years old, maybe older. FYI, the gardens officially opened in 1947. I think what I liked the most was reminiscing about the times I visited similar parks in Florida with my parents some 50+ years ago. With many of those places gone, it was great to relive some of the "old Florida" feelings. So when you go, spend a few dollars in the park to help keep it going for generations to come.

"So Many Peacocks"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 20, 2019 NEW
So many peacocks and not one ever opened his feathers!! We had a fabulous day at the Flamingo Gardens. It was so peaceful. Even in the middle of the flamingo pond with the flamingos calling out, I could just sit there for hours watching them. I was able to see all the animals: Buddy the panther, the otters, the sleeping bobcat, the sleeping bear, the sleeping alligators (Elvis and Priscilla). They must feed them well. It was very relaxing and a very enjoyable day. Thank you for maintaining such a gem.

"Wonderful place"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

My mom and I spent a day here recently. We loved it! The staff is so friendly and helpful, the birds and trees are beautiful, the animals seem well cared for. Make sure to see the Wildlife Encounters - each one is different animals. Take the tram ride - we did it twice and still didn't catch everything. The Wray home is interesting and if it's a hot day, cool! Great place.
