Experience the Beauty of Key West Gardens & Parks

Colorful flowers and trees, swaying palms, tangled mangroves—there is so much natural beauty in Key West.

Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden

Audubon House & Tropical Gardens

Known to some as the “Jewel of Key West,” the Audubon House and its gardens is one of the prettiest places on the island.

Key West Garden Club

One of the island’s last remaining free tourist attractions, the Key West Garden Club is one of Key West’s most beautiful and tranquil spots. The garden is maintained by members and volunteers and features a rare collection of native and exotic trees and plants, a water lily pond, waterfall, and arched courtyards. The Key West Garden Club is located in the West Martello Tower, a Civil War fort and a National Historic Site, which is near the beach on White Street and Atlantic Boulevard. It is only 1.5 miles away.

Sonny McCoy Indigenous Park

You’ll find the Sonny McCoy Indigenous Park located right next to the garden club. This native tree and bird park is a great place to spend your day or to celebrate a special event.

Open Daily from 9:00am – 5:00pm

The Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden

The Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden is home to many endangered and threatened flora and fauna, and features two wetland habitats, two butterfly gardens, a lush courtyard with a waterfall, and an array of tropical palms, trees, and plants. It is the only frost-free botanical garden in continental U.S., so most trees retain their leaves year-round thanks to the tropical environment and ample rain. Explore the garden or participate in community yoga and meditation along with local residents. The Botanical Garden is located on College Road in Stock Island, just 3.7 miles away. This is an excellent resource if you are looking for a venue for your special event including weddings!
