More than a Bunch of Flowers: The Naples Botanical Garden

Naples is famous for million dollar homes, a vast number of cultural programs and the high-end shops along Fifth Avenue. And yet, only a few minutes away from the pulsating life of the city, a quiet oasis awaits, the Naples Botanical Garden. Unspoiled nature and landscaped gardens with different themes are combined into a beautiful attraction that is well worth visiting.

After years of planning, the Naples Botanical Garden opened in November 2009 and was expanded a few years later. The spacious garden offers seven themed areas: Florida, Brazil, the Caribbean, and Asia showcase native trees and wildflowers. The water garden is a serene landscape dotted with water lilies, while ”The Preserve,” a conservation area, presents a piece of old Florida in its original state. Particularly well-done is the Children’s Garden, which includes a tree house, water playground and butterfly house.

 

You don’t have to be a passionate botanist to be captivated by this beautifully designed garden and its floral splendor. Winding walkways invite the visitor to stroll around for hours. One of the paths leads around a lake – you might spot a small alligator or two – and continues along the nature preserve, where an observation tower (easily accessible by ramp) allows wide views of the untouched landscape. Here, time does stand quite still.

The garden is not just a feast for the eyes, but also offers a number of educational programs for children and adults, from garden design, preservation, and photography to bird-watching and more. If you are ready to take a break from outlet mall shopping and boating tours, you’ll find the necessary peace and serenity right here.

Please note: Due to the construction of the new visitor center, the Garden will be closed from June to October 2014. The grand opening is scheduled for 10/23/14.
