Join us for a tour of the South Beach’s Miami Beach Botanical Garden and other select gardens/outdoor spaces designed by Ray Jungles. The combined tour gives a taste of the area’s green legacies.
Nestled in the heart of South Beach sits a quiet garden sanctuary where the trunks of almost 100 palm species sprout up from only a 2.6-acre area overlooking the surrounding urban landscape. Designed by Ray Jungles, the Miami Beach Botanical Garden is a welcome greenspace situated between the tranquil Collins Canal, where kayakers and paddle boarders can be seen gliding by, and the bustling pedestrian shopping plaza on Lincoln Road. The small remnant of green space is filled with beautiful garden plants—creating a refuge for locals and outside visitors alike.
Just walking distance away from Miami Beach Botanical Garden are several other notable landscapes and outdoor spaces designed by Raymond Jungles Studio. Miami Beach Botanical Garden staff will present these beautifully designed outdoor spaces, which embody Mr. Jungles’ personal and design principals—integrity, relevance, and honoring nature.
*This South Beach event is near some of the best shopping in Miami. Attendees may want to remain and take a taxi back to enjoy some post-tour shopping and exploration. Please inform the tour leader if you do not plan to take the Association tranportation back to the hotel InterContinental Miami.
