About the history of Jungle Gardens

This Florida flavor in Sarasota arose a very long time ago — more than 70 years ago.

The first mention of the Sarasota Jungle appeared in the 1930s. It was at this time that David Broad Lindsay acquired 10 acres in the western United States. The owner of the site had grandiose plans to create a botanical garden from the incredible virgin subtropical jungle.

D. Lindsay had a hard time, but his friend and neighbor, Pearson Conrad, came to his aid.

Creating a botanical garden is not an easy process, friends had a hard time collecting interesting trees and plants for the floristic filling of the jungle. They personally landed on the territory:

  • Australian walnut;
  • Bunya Bunya tree;
  • fragrant rice;
  • Peruvian apple cactus;
  • royal palms;
  • banana trees;
  • red maples;
  • bald cypress.

The efforts of Lindsay and Conrad were not in vain — starting in 1936, they began to notice the first visitors who came to the territory to look at the unique plantations. This is where the thinking of the managers kicked in and they set the entrance fee at 35 cents for adults and 10 cents for children. Since 1939, the Sarasota jungle began to officially work, attracting guests not only from America, but also from other countries of the world.

In the 1970s, the park was purchased by Arthur C. Allin, and it is his family that now manages the zoo. The owners began to bring rare birds and animals to the territory, opened a cafe, a souvenir shop and turned an ordinary boring garden into an entertainment center for active tourists.
