After our first visit to the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden to see the Dale Chihuly Glass Artwork display, we enrolled as annual members. This granted us free admission for one year.

During that year we visited several more times including for the International Mango Festival and the Chocolate Festival.

Once our membership had long been expired, we heard about the "Free Sundays" at Fairchild Garden that occur just about every year during the month of August.

The photos on this page are from the less frequented and less groomed areas of Fairchild Garden's property.

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables, FL 33156. The staff can be reached at (305) 667-1651.
