Naples Botanical Garden covers 170 acres and is a special place where people can connect with nature. It is located south of downtown Old Naples at 4820 Bayshore Drive.

The garden started with a dream founded by eight Naples residents in 1993 and today is one of the most sought after attractions in Southwest Florida.

The Garden’s displays are delightful, extensive, and always evolving. It consists of the beautifully cultivated tropical gardens mixed in with seven different natural Florida habitats.

Visitors can stroll through the gardens on paths and boardwalks and relax in areas that invite reflection on the splendor of view. A very special place is the Brazilian Garden. This paradise is a favorite of nature photographers so pack your cameras as you visit the Garden.

Don’t leave the children home, they will love all the special activities at the Botanical Garden including a magical butterfly house. They will also love all the hands-on activities of gardening in their own garden.

Lunch is offered at the Garden Cafe Cart with a limited menu of delicious salads and sandwiches available. Be sure to stop by the Visitor Center and the Garden Store for the plants offered for sale as well as books and many boutique items.

You may visit the Garden from 9:00am to 5:00pm daily. In addition to individual tickets, group tours may be arranged by contacting the Garden. They offer adult and youth educational programs. Individual and Family memberships are available for those who want to support the garden and visit often.
