“World Class Sculptures Well Worth Your Time and Money”

Peace River Botanicals & Sculpture Gardens
Ranked #31 of 66 things to do in Punta Gorda
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

I almost gave these gardens 4 stars only because the price seemed a bit high for the state of development, $12 general admission, $10 for seniors. it's early in the game. But it's a gorgeous piece of land, generously donated for the public good, and the sculptures are really world class. I live in Los Angeles and am a travel writer so I have seen many gardens. I actually appreciated how one could see the grounds, including reading about each sculpture, within a leisurely hour. The views of river out the two walkways were wonderful. As the plants mature, this place will get better and better. But enjoy how few people there are NOW while it's new. Would not hesitate to take visiting tourists.

i went to visit this place today on april 3, 2018. a guy driving a golf cart was very rude and unpolite with me. he told me that he did not like French, and less people coming from France and that by the way France was listed very low with americans. he also noted that people did not like France and that people did not want to speak to them in English and so on. I felt that this American was racist. Also the woman at the booth told that the seniors had to pay $10. each AND ON THEIR WEBSITE, THEY NEVER MENTION ANY ENTRANCE FEE THEY JUST WRITE ''DONATIONS WELCOME''

tHIS place is not completed and we do not feel welcome. think twice before going there.

We took a visit a few weeks ago. Looks like it could develop into a very nice place but it is still early to visit. We took a walk through the area and there was little to see so far. I will give it a higher rating assuming more will happen in the coming months/years. I feel they should be waving the admission fee at this time since there is very little to see right now.

NEW Botanical and Sculpture Garden; You will want to return each year to see how it develops. Not just a "work in progress" this already is a beautiful and tranquil place to enjoy now, then return each year!

This is a relatively new garden so remember that as you travel through the walkways. It just opened in October of 2017 and is in the early stages of Phase 1. The Sculptures it does have are noteworthy and impressive.
There is a small cactus section and hibiscus section. The cacti were in bloom which is a sight to behold.
