Flamingo Gardens was an excellent overall experience. I only had 70 minutes and was able to see a large number of interesting plants and animals. Everything was clean, well labeled and well laid out. There was a great diversity of plants and animals. A very family friendly experience and a very good value as well.

Flamingo Gardens was a pleasant surprise. We enjoyed the size of the gardens and the lovely variety and health of the plants. We were pleasantly surprised by how close we could get to the birds. Feeding the birds was a big success. I was thrilled to see how large the enclosures were and how active the mammals were. The otter exhibit was entertaining. We do recommend the tram ride and the animal talk that they had. The staff was all quite knowledgeable.

Flamingo Gardens is truly beautiful and handicapped accessable! My husband and I spent several hours there and really appreciated May's help picking out a local restaurant to continue the wonderful experience over a late lunch! Thank you so much May!
