What a gem

I had no idea there were so many types of fruit! Had great fun hacking open a coconut. You can eat anything on the ground . Recommend going on the tram tour for sure.

This is a must stop when in the Redland and Homestead area. I suggest that you take the tram tour before actually walking the park. You will get so much out of the tour with regards to the different species, the vast different fruits and their uses. The visitor building offers some fresh fruit to try before or after the... More

I've been here twice. It's a very unique and great place to enjoy a relaxing time among well preserved acres of exotic trees. Great for kids but a learning and enjoyable experience for any age.

First advice, bring a big bottle of water ! It is a really big park, a lot of trees, fruits, flowers to see. Especially if you want to see it all ! I think the whole visit took us almost 2 hours, and we had fun !

The rules of this park is fairly simple - anything that has fall off the tree/plant can be picked up and eaten, but nothing else. Depending on time of year (and when the fruits and spices ripen), you may see a lot or little fruit. Included in the admissions is a tram tour. Different plants are explained, but you don't... More

One of the few places in Miami area that allows dogs with well behaved owners. The place is interesting for the variety of fruit trees. No fruit for sale but they do offer sampling. Great restaurant for sandwiches.

Because of the passion of one woman for tropical fruits and plants, she left a legacy for everyone to enjoy! Many hours of work went into this park and I LOVED it. I saw many trees and plants I had never heard of. The staff was very friendly and shared the fruits from the park. A one of a kind... More
