We had a wonderful time and the attendants at the gardens were very nice. We would have loved to spend my time here but had to head out to return home.
It was a great park even better what they are doing for the animals there
No crowds the day we went. Tram carried only six designed for forty. I took many photos. I was glad for the heritage preserved,and we got to see more with the tram.

This place was a great to spend a Saturday afternoon. Outside of the leggy Flamingos, this place is a refuge for many rehabilitated animals such as bobcats, river otters and even a bear named Josh. Flamingo Gardens is also home to the tallest tree in Florida and one with largest in circumference, 54 feet!

We had some time to spare in Ft Lauderdale, so we went over to Flamingo Gardens to check it out. The gardens are great and the tram ride was very informative - seeing 5 different ecosystems in a 30-minute ride... I loved the animals though - reading the stories of how they came to be at Flamingo Gardens was very sad, but so awesome that they have found wonderful, caring homes here..
We had a great time at Flamingo Gardens. The tram ride around the park is well worth it. The guide is very informative. They have a few animals and lots of birds. They take in injured animals and care for them. It's a non-profit organization so any donations are gratefully received. You can also look through the old homestead which has some great old photos. There is a gift shop and food and drink stalls throughout the park. Also a walk through aviary. A taxi from Fort Lauderdale cost around $40 usd.
Gardens were good but not much in bloom this time of year. Love the fact that it's a sanctuary for injured animals. Loved the peacocks and peahens. Best part was being able to feed flamingos! Tram was ok but again not much to see because not much was in bloom. Overall good few hours
Great place to visit lots of things to do and great vistas for viewing.
