    This is another favorite botanical garden. Lots to see here, and they have a variety of sections with different themes. Check out the Japanese house in the back and the amazing selection of bonsai.

    Very nice! The only reason for 3 stars is that is was small. Very pretty

    Very well done gardens. Lots of interesting side gardens in different themes such as an herb garden, a large collection of bonsai, a Japanese garden, large air plant collection, native plants, and more. The acreage of the botanical garden is small, but it is used so effectively it can take several hours to wander all the paths.

    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.. :-)
