Bayfront Gardens, Sarasota

Bayfront Gardens, Sarasota

When you need to escape into a garden, make it the Bayfront Gardens. You can sit under the shade of the Banyan tree or Sabal Palmetto tree, have a picnic, enjoy the small stone statues in the whimsical Dwarf Garden, admire the Secret Garden, or even continue your art tour by checking out all the garden’s sculptures.

One of the great garden activities is the Millennium Tree Trail. Located at the southern end of the Ringling estate, the Trail showcases a variety of trees. You can see oak, citrus, holly, and magnolia trees. A stroll through Bayfront Gardens can be wonderfully refreshing in the intense Florida summer heat.

The Bayfront Gardens spread over the Ringling Museum’s 66 acres, including diverse and gorgeous landscapes. There are 14 Banyan trees, a Shaving Brush tree, a Tiger Claw tree, a Bunya Pine tree, a Rainbow Eucalyptus, and several bamboo trees.
