Flamingo Gardens – A Walk Through Florida’s Finest Wildlife

During our trip to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, we decided to take a trip to the small town of Davie, FL – home of Flamingo Gardens. We really didn’t know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised to find a great little wildlife park, home to a variety of species. If you are not familiar with the southern half of Florida, Davie is located about 20 minutes west of Fort Lauderdale.

From alligators to peacocks, Flamingo Gardens is a great spot to take the family for an afternoon getaway. Tickets are a little expensive at $18 for adults and $10 for children, but if you visit on a Monday admission is half price. Tuesday’s offer a ‘Buy one ticket, get one free’ and if neither of these options work there is always a coupon available that gives $2 off general admission that you can either print or show on your phone at the ticket counter.

We really enjoyed wandering around all of the exhibits, in particular seeing the variety of peacocks just meandering through the park. The Wray Home Museum has been restored to give visitors an opportunity to see how South Florida life was in the 1930s. However, during our visit it appeared the peacocks were finding this museum was their new found habitat, probably because it was the coolest spot in the park!

I confess I am a bit perplexed by the presence of the bobcat...

Yeah, that was a bit random for sure but you never know what sort of wildlife you will come across when you visit one of these types of parks!

Those flamingos are lovely! (and love the turtles too!) It's always nice to see that animals are kept in good conditions! If only it could be everywhere!

Looks like a charming place to explore and I particularly love the picture of the peacock sitting on a branch with his beautiful feathers flowing down - magical!

Ooh I love flamingos! They are so vibrant! I saw them living in the wild in Bonaire a few years ago and it was quite amazing :)
