The entrance is over priced... I didn't see anything worthwhile besides the butterfly and orchid exhibit. The staff at the ticket booth was rude and unhelpful. I overpaid due to their inattentiveness.

It was a great place to go and see plants and enjoy nature but that is probably it. The day I went it was way too hot and I couldn't really enjoy it. In about 2 hours we were ready to leave but we decided to wait for the tour which was nice and got to hear and learn and see the plants but that's really it.

Absolutely magestic garden! You can really get lost in the beauty of nature here. Excellent place to practice outdoor photography. My kids and wife all enjoyed the day and look forward to returning.

the botanic garden park is a nice place to visit however, the ticket (promotion) was not a great deal since the entrance at the park was $7.50 per person and the price in grupon was 30 per two people

Everyone was very friendly. This was my first time going during the day when there was not another event going on. It was very relaxing to go walk around for the day

From Our Editors

Since 1938, the keepers of the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden have cultivated more than 85 acres of floral displays with a mixture of science and art. The gardens are lush with plants valuable to scientists and educators, and the tropical landscapes designed by William Lyman Phillips are like ever-evolving canvases, blooming and fading as the seasons change. Most of the palms, cycads, flowering trees, and vines were collected from the wild, but the grounds also harbor endangered plant species.

Guides give English and Spanish tram tours as well as walking tours through specific parts of the gardens, or visitors can explore the displays at their leisure, wandering through the 16,428-square foot two-level Tropical Plant Conservatory exhibit, which blooms with orchids, fruit trees, and rare palms. Cascading waterfalls punctuate the stream flowing through the 2-acre Richard H. Simons Rainforest, where visitors admire the diverse plant life and reflect on the worldwide threat of rapidly vanishing rainforests. The Wings of the Tropics exhibit features thousands of exotic butterflies with tropical fish and rare plant life. Butterflies are released twice daily and the Butterfly Metamorphosis Lab lets kids experience them up close. The water gardens combine tranquility pools with waterfalls, sculpture, and lily pads to evoke a sense of calm.
