Founded in 1940, Sarasota Jungle Gardens is one of the oldest attractions in the state of Florida, and the only Zoological attraction in the area. Over the years, Sarasota Jungle Gardens has maintained its “Old Florida” charm and keeps children and adults alike remembering the days that have since gone by.
Famous for its “free roaming” Flamingo’s, Sarasota Jungle Gardens has a vast array of exotic birds and reptiles that will entertain and educate for hours as you walk through the lush 10 acre tropical landscape. Take a break from the day and enjoy one of their delicious sandwiches or ice cream from The Flamingo Cafe, or let your little ones play on our newly designed “Kiddie Jungle” with a brand new playground!
Sarasota Jungle Gardens is open daily from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Parking is limted but there are two main beach accesses residents and visitors can utilize to reach the powdery white quartz sand.
