Have to say, first impressions weren't great. Felt like we had been ripped off but as we got further into the gardens we realised our initial impressions were wrong. Amazing place for those who love either wildlife and or photography. Not nice to see injured animals, but I guess if they are being cared for and are painfree, then its... More

Saw lots of animals, just not the black bear that was hiding? There were more peacocks roaming the grounds than anything! Very pretty birds.

Thank you so much for visiting and for sharing your experiences. Josh the Bear is usually not awake this time of the year. It is hibernation time in the wild and we just can't keep him up! Glad that you enjoyed the peacocks and hope to see you again if you are in the area! More

We went on a Tuesday, and it wasn't crowded. We really enjoyed the informative Wild Life Encounter time in which an interpreter did an excellent job of sharing about native animals/birds. This is a rehabilitation center for animals and birds that have been injured or are unable to live in the wild. They also prepare bird's/animals for reintroduction to the... More

We dropped in to see the amazing flamingoes but the other animal exhibits (black bear, otters, bob cat and lots of birds of prey) were too good to miss. Lovely gardens.

If you take your time and see everything at this park it can take up more than a few hours of your day. The tram ride gives a history of the land and owners. The house is open for tours. There are plenty of animals/plants to discover especially the peacocks roaming around the property. Great place to take pictures of... More

I highly recommended if you are visiting Fort Lauderdale area. The pink flamingos are so cute. Make sure to do the tram ride. Other wildlife creatures in the garden were added bonus. Lots of mango trees in the property. Those trees will should be full of mangoes from May on.

This place has a charming touch of natural Florida as it used to be, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and beach scene. When we went it was not crowded at all, in fact it was very serene overall. To those who say that it is overpriced ($20 per adult and $13 for kids), keep in mind... More

This is a bit of a park, a bit of a zoo, a bit of a conservation location, a bit of animal rescue, a bit of country store, a bit of farm, a bit of a aviary.... well... you get the idea... it's a little bit of a veriety of things. You can see this in just a few hours.... More

This isn't a bad place but I just feel if you are over 20 years old and are an intellectual you might not find this enjoyable. Had it been only 10 bucks to get in I wouldn't have balked but at 20 bucks I kinda expected more. It seems like they are just trying to make a few bucks here.... More

Dear Jessica, We are so glad that you enjoyed the Free-Flight Aviary. The reason that there are so many birds in there is because we are a sanctuary and these are all injured non-releasable animals. Without the aviary, they would have nowhere to go after rehab. You were able to walk around the back lake, that is why the benches... More
