Sarasota's Favorite Family Attraction!

Established in 1939

Plan Your Visit


A tropical adventure awaits all who visit Sarasota Jungle Gardens. One of the oldest continuously operating attractions in Florida, Sarasota Jungle Gardens evokes memories of Florida days gone by, full of flora, fauna and fun, yet remains current and exciting for today’s families, locals, and tourists alike.


A wide variety of birds and animals – many of them rescued – includes Florida’s noted pink flamingos, parrots, crocodiles, lemurs, snakes and more. All nestled within 10 acres of lush, tropical landscaping connected by winding jungle trails. It’s one of the only places you can walk up to and feed free roaming flamingos.


Daily bird and reptile shows are as educational as they are entertaining and for the youngest visitors, our newly renovated playground will provide countless hours of fun.


Hungry? Don’t worry, as Sarasota Jungle Gardens offers a full menu of sandwiches, salads, snacks, and ice cream in our Flamingo Café with both air-conditioned indoor and outdoor dining available.
