(4.5/5 based on 65+ 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.

  • Small beautiful historic gardens overlooking Coral Gables. Definitely worth a visit, because you get to see a lot of different trees and plants. With a little luck, you can see even one or two manatees in the small Bay.

  • Small park that actually can be considered as a botanical garden because of its well preserved and diverse flora. Open from 9 to 17, and 10 to 16 on Saturday. Closes on Sundays. Admission is free. It is located in Coconut Grove.

  • Wasn't sure of the name but the photo looks like the place we went. Nice tropical gardens and a quiet place to walk.

  • 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.
