Flamingo Gardens wildlife sanctuary is home to the largest collection of Florida native wildlife including alligators, bobcats, eagles, otters, panthers, peacock, and of course, flamingos! A nature lover’s delight - explore and enjoy the Arboretum & Champion Trees, Butterfly & Hummingbird Gardens, Croton Garden, Florida Wildflower Garden, Ginger & Heliconia Gardens, Xeriscape Garden, Live Oak Hammock, and the Tropical Rainforest and Wetlands Area, which is accessible only by the Narrated Tram Tour. Bask in the beauty of these fragrant and exotic plantings.
We’ll experience the Gardens via the Tram Tour that takes us through the terrain to places inaccessible by foot. The centerpiece of the gardens is a natural hammock of 200 year-old Live Oaks dripping with species orchids and epiphytes. Here sits the historic Wray Home Museum, built in 1933 by Floyd L. and Jane Wray as a weekend retreat. It is the oldest residence in Broward County west of University Drive. The building was restored in 1991 to depict a typical South Florida country home of the 1930s. Mrs. Wray’s wish to preserve the core property for future generations and emphasize the flora, fauna, and history of the Florida Everglades is the core of Flamingo Gardens' mission still today.
