This sounded like a really cool garden made on the ruins of a 12 acre sugar plantation from the 1830s. The plantation was burned during a Seminole Indian uprising.
In the 1940s this garden area was a theme park. It was called Bongoland and life size dinosaur statues remain from that era in the tropical gardens.
There weren’t as many blooms as I had hoped for but we enjoyed the historical display of the sugar plantation equipment, and we had fun searching for the old dinosaurs.
