We are pleased to inform you that Kanapaha Botanical Gardens has been identified as "Best of Attractions Gainesville Florida", by UpTake.com. UpTake.com awards are based on a careful analysis of customer reviews and expert ratings from across the web collected from over 5000 different websites and millions of customer opinions.

Kanapaha Botanical Gardens is a perfect venue for wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, meetings, retreats, conferences and other social functions with both indoor and outdoor rental opportunities.

Kanapaha Botanical Gardens is comprised of 24 major collections visually accessible from a 1 ½ mile paved walkway. These include the state largest public display of bamboos and the largest herb garden in the Southeast. Some of Kanapaha's gardens are organized taxonomically; others demonstrate principles of ecology or natural selection. Kanapaha signature plants include a premier stand of Chinese royal bamboo (Wong Chuk), and--during the warm months--giant Victoria water lilies and Asian snake arums. The months offering the most color are June through September. Excluding special events like our Spring Garden Festival and Moonlight Walk, dogs are permitted on leashes.
