Gnomes Invade Naples Botanical Garden!

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Some invasions in a garden are welcome, especially when they are a group of eight-inch high, pointy-hat wearing garden helpers also known as gnomes! Naples Botanical Garden will give visitors to the Vicky C. and David Byron Smith Children's Garden the chance to learn about how we can all be a bit more gnome-like and help to take care of our own habitats. Gnomes in the Garden is a whimsical event that will get children and parents involved in actively looking at what really makes up a garden and the various habitats we live among.

Paradise: A place of bliss. A region of supreme delight. A state of happiness. Naples Botanical Garden is creating a world class paradise that combines delightful cultivated tropical gardens with beautifully restored natural habitats. The Garden connects people and plants through display, education, conservation and science. It will be a community gathering place and an exceptional venue for exploring our natural world as well as enjoying special events, traveling exhibitions and performances. In 1993, a group of eight Naples residents founded the Garden with nothing more than the dream of creating a world-class botanical garden.

In 2000, a gift from the Kapnick Family enabled the purchase of an extraordinary 170-acre site with seven different habitats just south of Old Naples. An existing strip mall and parking lot were transformed into a garden experience to introduce the community to what was to come. In June 2008, the Garden closed to general visitors to begin our ultimate transformation into our existing "Gardens with Latitude" which includes six cultivated gardens, 2.5 miles of walking trails, and 90-acres of restored native preserve .
