Review: Naples Botanical Gardens

As part of our stay in SW Florida we visited the Naples Botanical Gardens. We went early, getting there just when it opened at 10 a.m. It was nice to tour the garden before it got too hot and before the crowds arrived.

We really enjoyed our visit. Inside the Children's Garden area there is a lovely butterfly garden and paths to wander along. There was even a fountain area where children could play in the water.





There are several types of gardens such as an Asian garden, a Florida Garden and a Water Garden with absolutely beautiful water lilies.





We saw several piliated woodpeckers, plus juvenile bald eagles, egrets, and I even spotted two racoons. It took us about two hours to tour the garden in a relaxed stroll. If you like botanical gardens, this is one I would recommend.
