overview

Description:

Come and experience a tropical oasis, where Old Florida meets a dense and diverse collection of native plants and exotic specimens unique to this growing zone. Its winding pathways and expansive waterscapes combine with a variety of palms and ferns to form a unique "jungle garden" landscape. Rich in history, McKee Botanical Garden dates back to the 1930s, and is recognized as one of Florida's first and most treasured natural attractions. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is endorsed by the Garden Conservancy as a project of national significance. It features two unique structures designed and built by founder and folk artist Waldo Sexton as well as the United States' first permitted bamboo structure. Children who visit are encouraged to navigate their own Garden adventure with one of McKee's Garden Discovery Backpacks. Each backpack contains age-appropriate educational materials and tools to create their very own Garden adventure. Five themes are available: Garden Explorer, Things with Wings, It's a Bug's World, Plantastic and Survival: Lost in the Jungle. Backpacks can be checked out at Garden Admissions for no additional cost and may be enjoyed during the visit.
