It cost only $8 (each) to get in to this beautiful park, and while we were there we were treated to multiple samples of probably two dozen different types of fruit in... More

I love fruit. My kids love fruit. My wife loves fruit. For $8 per person (kids under 6 are free), you can walk the park and eat any fruit lying on the ground. The rule is: if it's on the ground and you know what it is, you can eat all you want. The most mainstream fruit available is the... More

Staff seemed to lack basic knowledge of plant biology, and were not particularly friendly (in the office). There was a fair bit of misinformation on the tour, so anyone with horticultural/agricultural knowledge will be biting their tongue. I suppose it's a good experience for kids, but it wasn't for us.

The park is very well kept and the staff was very friendly. The grounds are huge and safe it was a great day out for the kids to get some exercise. Do be cautious as some of the plants/trees are poisonous...they are marked and the park warns you but watch your kids closely if they are small. Don't miss this... More

This place had some amazzzzing food. We had the lobster roll and it's literally to die for. I would love to have this back home in Ottawa :)

We were happily surprised to be driving around Homestead and find this spot I had seen on Tripadvisor. We took the self-guided tour, but I'd love to go back and get a tour with a guide. We learned so much just by chatting with the volunteer at the entrance building. She gave us samples of some of the fruit that... More

We went at the end of march so there weren't too many fruits available. Our tour guide said that June and July are better for fruit. The place is lovely. The tram is great although I'd say to bring insect repellent and sunblock as well as cold bottles of water.

Over the past years this park has grown and expanded. There is a wonderful walking path that leads through the park among many varieties of fruit and spice trees. There is a large fountain in the large pond. At this park you can spend an hour or a day seeing all there is. Comfortable walking/hiking shoes, a hat, a camera... More

This little gem in the heart of Homestead is one of the better things in that part of Florida. Definitely worth the time to visit and sample all the different fruits available. The tours are very informative and interesting, Iva is friendly and fun to have as your guide.

We had an afternoon left in Florida City and wanted to see something that would not require a lot of driving and could be done in 3-4 hours. We weren't exactly sure what to expect so this was a real surprise. You can do a self guided tour of the park but the best way to see it is to... More
