“Heart of the Garden”

“Heart of the Garden” features repertory by Armando Gonzalez, Justin Rapaport, Vitolio Jeune, Kashia Kancey & Peter London. The performance is fusion of Miami’s cultural dance mix by its leading multicultural contemporary dance company, featuring versatile performers of Afro-Caribbean, Hip-Hop, contemporary, Latin, Jazz and classical dance.

The sanctuary-like grounds feature a variety of water features, a native and an edible garden, flowering trees, wildlife and, of course, plenty of orchids and palm trees.

Stroll through the Japanese garden, over an idyllic red bridge, then take in the colorful fruit in the edible garden. There you'll see starfruit, papaya, pineapple, lychee and pomegranates growing. 

The main pond features water lilies, plus a cascading fountain and circular fountain surrounded by red mangroves and water-loving plants.

The garden was created as a Miami Beach city park in 1962 and rejuvenated during fall 2011 as part of a $1.2 million landscape project by South Florida landscape architect Raymond Jungles.
