The Kampong, Miami

(4.4/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
The Garden. The History. The Legacy.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Kampong was the historic home and personal garden of famed plant explorer Dr. David Fairchild, and later, philanthropist and preservationist Catherine Sweeney. The waterfront estate features a Mission/Spanish Revival style house designed by Edward Clarence Dean and Fairchild's original office, now converted into a museum.

The garden is renowned for its irreplaceable collections of rare and unusual varieties of tropical and subtropical fruits, palms, and flowering trees, shrubs and vines; many planted by Fairchild's own hands. More than 2000 plants fill the 11 acres.

  • Lovely and peaceful gardens. You can spend a couple of hours and have a picnic.If you enjoy botany or fascinated with Asian fruit trees all the better. 
  • Well I can't say much of the Park as we arrived at the gate by car a person told us to take the next road on the right and Park and the entrance was free, little indication... We find an entry we're almost alone we walk a little ROUND-TRIP to the WC and a woman comes alongside us: what are you doing the! The gag she explains it is $ 15 per person visit, oup saw the number of people and the Organization lousy one wonders is that we have as a surprise for this price the... In short it is said that it remains not the... She'll walk us a grid... I told him our car is parked the... She amazed we asked who authorized us entry in short something crazy

  • What a piece of paradise. Lovely specimens. The history is really cool. Love the house. Just everything is beautiful and very special feeling. A must go for anyone that loves botanical and history.
  • Beautiful place to disconnect from the busyness of life. Walk through the paths filled with breathtaking plants. Enjoy the view of Biscayne Bay. Become a member.
  • I absolutely loved it. It's small but worth it. Very Zen. Bring your picnic to enjoy more time in the atmosphere. They say to couple this visit with a visit to Fairchild Park on the same day. If you know Yoga this would be an awesome place to practice next to the water.
