The 50-year-old 2.6 acre urban garden had a facelift in 2011 and is back to being a popular spot to spend time away from the bustle of the city for visitors and locals alike. It hosts a farmers' market every Wednesday, lunchtime yoga classes and regular 'orchid exchanges'. Native Florida plants include bromeliads, palms and cycads, but there's also a Japanese garden and wetland with mangrove and pond apple trees.
