Pinecrest Gardens

I miss the former Parrot Jungle that used to be here. Now it's changed to Pinecrest Gardens which is a 20-acre (81,000 m2) park in Pinecrest, Florida on the corner of Southwest 111th Street (Killian Drive) and Southwest 57th Avenue (Red Road). I used to get breakfast at the Parrot Jungle that started in 1936 until they relocated to the city of Miami's Watson Island in 2003. Now, the new Pinecrest Gardens includes a variety of sites including botanical gardens, butterfly exhibit, swan lake, petting zoo, children's playground, and a popular splash-n-play area. The park also hosts an annual fine arts festival, MagiCamp, and is available for rental for private parties, receptions, Admission is no longer free, and they charge US $3 for each visitor.
