All the buildings and structures were in disrepair. It seems as if the park was left to go into a very natural state. The birds, however are beautiful. Many peacocks, large heron type birds, and many other colorful birds plus lizards of different sizes. There...More

Lots of birds and mosquitos! A great place to rollerblade, bike, scooter, or anything else on wheels. Great paths to wander on or go for a jog (very flat terrain). Do not forget your bug spray.

Hurricane Betsy in 1965 flooded the grounds of the zoo, which was relocated to the current location, South of Miami. Some of the old cages are still there, but it is a nice place to visit: plenty of animals and birds, roaming undisturbed.

Easy to spot many life animals and birds in their natural habitat. We saw peacocks, cranes, iguanas, geese and much more in our brief 20 min tour. Picturesque landscape, well-kept and natural.
