Peace River Botanical & Sculpture Gardens

How does our garden grow? We’re super excited to find out next year when this 27-acre Peace River masterpiece – a clever combo of botanicals, native Florida flora and contemporary sculpture by renowned artists – make is debut at 5900 Riverside Drive in Punta Gorda. The Tetrault Foundation made the garden possible with one of the largest endowments bestowed to a public botanical garden in Florida. This special place will offer natural aquatic and terrestrial habitats, boardwalks and sculptures from around the world sprinkled among a bounty of year-round blooms, flowering trees and plants.
