Kanapaha Botanical Gardens






Kanapaha Botanical Gardens situated on sixty-two acres located at 4700 SW 58th Drive in Gainesville. Stop and read a memory brick then look up at one of the tall bamboo trees along the walkway to the entrance garden. Bring your lunch and eat in the picnic area or on one of the tables on the wrap-around porch. pict1249

Stand on a bridge and listen to the sound of a waterfall and the water that runs through the rocks underneath the bridge. Four waterfalls encompass the Water Feature Gardens a ½-mile area.

Twenty specialty gardens throughout Kanapaha, I can’t list them all. I recommend a return visit. Hours, fees and rental space for weddings and other events available on the website.
