Nancy Forrester’s Secret Garden

sights / Parks & gardens

Lonely Planet review

Nancy, a local artist and fixture of the Keys community, invites you to bring lunch (but no cell phones!) into her oasis of lush palms, orchids and chatty rescued parrots and macaws. Although the place is called a secret garden, Nancy considers it to be a piece of art in and of itself – the last acre of undeveloped (although tended and cared for by human hands) natural space within the heart of Key West. Children are welcome and seem to love the local bird life.
