  • My future wife and I were looking for a venue that would capture the beauty and natural wonders of life to celebrate our special wedding day. When we went to Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Ft. Pierce, we knew we were done searching. The Gardens provided the perfect atmosphere and setting for all of our desires; from the wedding, to all pictures, to the reception, nothing could compare to what we were looking for and our budget. The best part is that the facility was closed to the public and we had the whole place to ourselves. Thank you Myriam and Taylor for providing such an amazing venue experience, you definitely exceeded our expectations!! We look forward to coming back very soon.. :-)
  • Huge variety of plants in a small, easily walkable garden. One of the largest mature Bonsai gardens in the United States. Herb garden, Tropical Rainforest, many types of trees. Special events include Pioneer Days and Christmas lights with Santa. Pavilion avaliable for special events, perfect for a beautiful wedding. A hidden gem in Ft. Pierce, Florida.
  • Very nice small botanical garden, great bonzai, nice variety of other flora, a lot of Florida native plants.
  • Beautiful gardens, the largest bonsai collection in the U.S. Peaceful & relaxing.
  • Great place to enjoy the afternoon wondering through the gardens of flowers and Bonsai. trees
