Florida Botanical Gardens


  The Children's Trail  


What is yellow and green and fun all over?

The Children’s Trail at the Florida Botanical Gardens!

Follow Flora on this Special Trail Just for Kids!

Flora will show you weird and wonderful things as you explore the Florida Botanical Gardens.

With the aid of a map available for download below or at the Garden Welcome Center, start at the Butterfly Garden, hike over to the boardwalk Tree Station, and scan for wildlife with the binoculars near the pond. Then stroll through our Fruit Garden, while our mascot, Flora, teaches fun facts about Florida fruits. Take your favorite child, age 4 or 84, on a lively exploration of our gardens—and watch for additional enhancements soon!

This fun activity should take an hour.

You may wish to visit our neighbor, Heritage Village Here you will find a fascinating collection of historical buildings lovingly restored to their original condition with fascinating interpretation including a host of knowledgeable docents to help you understand the buildings you enjoy.
