Perhaps the most memorable part of an Ardastra visit is the amazing gardens. There is a tranquility here that cannot be bought or manufactured.
Ardastra Gardens is set in four acres of lush jungle, filled with indigenous and regional plants, and the gardens are undoubtedly one of the most memorable parts of a visit to the Zoo. It has an informal shape with narrow, twisting paths leading to shady seats and timber-framed animal habitats. Each section of the Garden has its own character and special delights. To the north, a narrow path winds across a bridge towards the Secret Garden. It weaves its way between mature trees such as royal palms, sea grape, logwood, tamarind and Indian tulip trees, as well as West Indies Mahogany, which is listed as threatened in the Preservation of Native Flora of Florida Act.
