Florida Tech Botanical Garden

Located in the middle of the Florida Tech campus in Melbourne, FL, the Botanical Garden features 30 acres of subtropical foliage including palms, ferns, and bamboo, as well as native fauna such as turtles, frogs, raccoons, and more. Various walking paths and natural streams wind themselves through “The Jungle”, as it is commonly called by Florida Tech students. Benches, pagodas, and gazebos can be found scattered throughout the gardens, so visitors can sit and enjoy the quiet serenity of the location. Florida Tech’s Botanical Garden is also the home of Brevard County’s first schoolhouse, the Little Red Schoolhouse, which was built in 1883. The nine-foot by twelve-foot structure was moved to the campus in 1971.

Florida Tech’s Botanical Garden is a unique collection of native plant and animal life, and is well worth a visit if you are in the area. The Botanical Garden is open everyday, from dawn to dusk. Bicycles, skateboards, and dogs are not allowed in the gardens. The Florida Tech campus is located in Melbourne, FL at the corner of Babcock Street and University Blvd. Florida Tech’s website: www.fit.edu
