Heathcote Botanical Gardens, Fort Pierce, Stuart FL

Description

Heathcote Botanical Gardens is a tropical paradise where you'll be inspired by the unusual flowers, lush vegetation, and themed garden areas. Our favorite is the Reflection Garden, which has an amazing whirlpool fountain and the sweetest gate. The Bonsai Garden is a large collection of strange Bonsai trees. Smell the delightful lemon balm in the Herb Garden. My daughter loved the Japanese Garden with its little spirit houses and stream full of fish. Another garden has a tiny waterfall and lush tropical vegetation. There is an area with a large lawn and old tree surrounded by caladiums. How lovely their thin, soft leaves are! Walk under leafy archways, and watch butterflies flutter by. Everywhere you look there is a hanging basket or something pretty. Come here and stroll around with your partner, friend or children- you will all have a wonderful time!
For a bite to eat, check out sleepy Fort Pierce town, a seven minute drive away. While in the area, check out the Smithsonian Aquarium- located in a gorgeous spot- and behind it the fantastic St Lucie County History Center.
