As South Florida’s Cultural Arts Park, it features over 1,000 varieties of rare and exotic tropical plants and palm trees in a native tropical hardwood and cypress setting. Its dramatic landscape, enhanced with natural streams, caves, and fissures, provides the most dramatic stage for our historically designated structures and buildings.
