  • It was a bit chilly the day we walked around the gardens. The plants are mature, and many were in flower, they looked stunning. There is a surcharge for admittance, $15.00 per adult, not sure about...

  • This place is amazing the garden look fantastic and great pathways around this pristine gardens. Unfortunately the garden weren’t in full bloom but all the bulbs and bushes were getting ready to flower 🌺 we’ll be back next time. I would definitely recommend this place to see how nice the volunteers have put so much work in the garden and surrounding areas.
  • Everglades consists of beautiful gardens and impressive architects and artworks. I'm especially impressed with the carved tree trunks. Maybe it’s better to visit the garden in spring or autumn so you can see more flowers. We didn't get to visit the tea house since it was closed. But overall it's worth the visit. Ticket purchase: $15 pp
