The guides on the Tram tour and at the historic house were welcoming and interesting. The walking track through the gardens and zoo areas were easy to navigate. The lunch menu is limited. It is a small zoo/garden with native animals, reptiles flora and fauna. We had a good four hour visit. Two Seniors
I visited Flamingo Gardens in January 2018. I enjoyed my visit but would call this more of an animal sanctuary than a garden, although there are plants/trees/shrubs of all kinds spread out over a vast area. I did not see many flowers which is what someone who visits a garden might expect if you were visiting a botanical garden. Also I felt there was not enough signage explaining what I am seeing or where I was situated sometimes. We took the tram ride, twice, about 20 minutes total time, which takes you all through the gardens which is worthwhile and should be done to get a feel for the scope of the place. There is some explanation given of what you are seeing, but it feels a bit rushed. We then walked the entire paths afterwards to see things up close. We were there approx. 5 hours so we saw pretty much everything. The flamingos/ibis are in a set off place and are completely charming and worth seeing. We had a bite to eat at the nearby snack bar and watched their antics while we ate. There was also a show and tell of some of the animals, but only 3, so we were a bit disappointed at so few being shown up close. Overall I would say there are more birds than any other type of animal, many are rescued/injured, which is why I say more of a sanctuary. Also surprising and fun are the many birds and especially peacocks that roam around the front area. There is also the Wray House Museum to see where you are given an extremely short tour of the house, which I did not feel gives you a great sense of understanding of the people who actually started this garden.The souvenir shop is ok but we would have liked to seen more local products in it. My rating is a 3.5 on 5. Also note that you must drive to get here as there is no nearby public transportation.
Came to Fort Lauderdale for my honeymoon and desired to tour the sites with my new bride and enjoy the warm weather. Flamingo Gardens offered us an experience that we can't get anywhere else. It was the first time for either of us to not only see flamingos, but also to feed them by hand! The Tram Ride was informative, and I recommend for anyone going to the Gardens to go on the Tram first, which takes visitors through the park and highlights the unique aspects of this beautiful sanctuary for wounded animals. The Animal Encounters show was very impressive and enjoyable. When we come back to Fort Lauderdale, we certainly will return.
