The Fruit & Spice Park
Guided tours are conducted every day at 11 am, 1:30 pm and 3 pm, weather permitting. Private tours for schools, clubs and any special interest group can be arranged at convenient times.
Plan to be Outdoors
The Park is open in all weather conditions (although tram tours will be suspended due to lightning). A visit can include extensive walking, so plan your attire accordingly.
Strollers, easels, tripods, monopods and selfie sticks are allowed on the Park grounds. Stroller parking is available at the tram stop. The Garden reserves the right to inspect all bags.
Individual photographers are welcome to take snapshots of the plants and gardens at the Conservatory. All group photography, photo shoots and professional/commercial photography sessions require a photo permit. This includes classes, clubs, fashion shoots and engagement and family portraits. Contact the park office at 305.247.5727. Fees may apply.
The Garden, its buildings and its tour vehicles are accessible to people with disabilities, with the exception of a few areas where the terrain is naturally uneven. Wheelchairs are available free of charge at the Garden entrance, on a first-come, first-served basis (reservations are not accepted). An ID must be left with Visitor Services.
