About Flamingo Gardens
Flamingo Gardens is a non-profit botanical garden and Everglades wildlife sanctuary located in Davie, Florida. It was first established in 1927 as Flamingo Groves and is one of the oldest botanical gardens and tourist attractions in South Florida. Today, Flamingo Gardens is 60 acres of tropical paradise. Its botanical garden is a showcase for more than 3,000 species of rare and exotic, tropical, subtropical, and native plants. Flamingo Gardens' Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary gives residence to permanently injured and non-releasable birds and animals. It is home to over 90 native species, making it the largest collection of Florida native wildlife in the state. The property is now listed as a Broward Cultural Heritage Landmark and the Wray Home is a registered Historical Landmark with the state of Florida and a museum giving visitors a glimpse of life in the 1930s. Flamingo Gardens’ mission is to depict, preserve, and provide education about the natural and cultural heritage of South Florida and the Everglades in its botanical gardens and wildlife sanctuary.
