We enjoyed the Gardens. The paths were easy for my dad's mobility scooter. The Gardens are a nice walk with beautiful trees and plants.

I come from the frozen north where crotons, bamboo and palms and such do not exist, so I did find it interesting to see these tropical plants in what was like a jungle. However, the same plants seemed to be throughout the gardens randomly placed...More

They are in a display area separated from the walkway. If you want to see flamingos up close and have them eat out of your hand, visit the Flamingo Jungle Gardens in Sarasota.
