Botanical Garden and Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary (Flamingo Gardens) Davie, Florida

Located in southern Florida, Flamingo Gardens is a 60-acre Botanical Garden and Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary. The gardens feature over 3000 species of rare & exotic, tropical, subtropical, and native plants and trees.

Established in 1927, Flamingo Gardens is one of the oldest botanical gardens in southern Florida.

The highlight of this tropical oasis is the beautiful pink flamingos, from which the gardens gets its name.

The non-native Cluster Fig is the largest tree in the Florida Champion Tree register.  It is 102 feet tall and a little over 54 feet in circumference.

The 1930s Wray Home Museum on the property was built by Floyd L. and Jane Wray as a weekend retreat. It is one of the oldest residences in Broward County. 

The half-acre aviary is home to over 250 wading birds from over 45 species and over 90 species of Florida native birds and animals. Most of the birds are permanently injured or non-releasable.

The Flamingo Gardens is 17 miles west of Fort Lauderdale and 30 miles north of the Miami International Airport.
