Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Pinecrest Gardens is one of the most significant cultural and ecological assets in South Florida. The 12.5-acre site is home to one of the most diverse desert gardens in Florida and includes over 1,000 varieties of rare and exotic tropical plants and palm trees. It is the only natural rain forest on American Soil.

The recently renovated Banyan Bowl is a 500-seat outdoor amphitheater nestled under a geodesic dome, and its stage is host to jazz and other music concerts, theater, and dance performances, movies for children, art exhibits and many other family friendly activities.
