  • We were pleasantly surprised by how great this place was, especially for young children. You can buy bags of food for whatever animal(s) you want to feed. You can pay $5 for when they do gator feedings to hold bamboo pole with fish on end. Don't be deterred by the signage that is falling in the front, it was damaged by hurricane and they have been refurbishing much of the park. We only planned to check it out and ended up staying for hours. Staff was all professional and wonderful.
  • Absolutely amazing. This is a must-see little gem. They make homes for people that can't have their animals anymore. They live off of your donations and your admission price. And they're always updating. They did get hit hard during Irma. So they've been doing a lot of Renovations and they've done a great job. These pictures I'm sharing with you or taken before Christmas time. And the last two pictures are our fish that they we're able to adopt because they got too big for our pond. That's stormy and Casper. The staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly. I will continue to visit this place. I recommend this for anybody in the area it's worth the visit.
  • The garden is a must see. It's old Florida at it's Best. The place is still recovering from the battering it took from Hurricane Irma. But the gardens are clean and the animals appear to be well cared for. Our little group was even impressed with the cleanliness of the rest rooms. I'm sure that after a short time for some regrowth, the Everglades Wonder Garden will get five stars.
  • We had a nice time visiting this place. Many interesting plants, animals, reptiles and birds. Hurricane Irma was a little rough on the trees here and continued cleanup is evident. Only 1 restroom for a bus of women!
  • It was awesome! There's a small history portion you can look at, a small art exhibit with some pictures, a small gift shop and of course plants and animals. A hurricane hit it so the sign is clearly damaged out front and the plants are lacking for now. However the animals are all ok and safely back in their homes. It's $12 to get in, and you can also buy bags of bird feed at the register for $1 a bag. There's bird feed for the flamingos, they'll actually eat out of your hand if your patient and they trust you. Then there's an assorted food bag that feeds all the rest of the birds which we found useful to get the peacock to come out for more photo opportunities. I can't recommend it enough!
