Nestled among unassuming academic buildings at the Florida Institute of Technology lies 15 hidden acres of lush, tropical paradise and nature-filled walking trails at Florida Tech’s Botanical Garden.

.

Nestled among the brick and block academic buildings that define the campus of the Florida Institute of Technology lies a lush tropical paradise. The Florida Tech Botanical Gardens, also known as the Dent Smith Trail, encompasses 15 acres of winding streams, shady palm trees and enough rare foliage and flora to fill a plant nursery.

.

Collectively, the trail system provide walkers, joggers and nature lovers with about one and a quarter miles of the most diverse, gorgeous backdrops in all of Brevard County. In addition to the paved, mulch and dirt trails that weave beneath the mesic-hydric oak/palm hammock, there are bridges, pavilions and benches to pause for a moment of repose or quiet observation and introspection.

.

The garden grounds are punctuated with babbling brooks and streams, which wind through the jungle-green landscape and add to the overall aesthetic beauty in a big way. The area serves as a flood plain for nearby Crane Creek, which helps provide natural irrigation for the 200-plus varieties of palm, flowers, vine, bamboo and more. This also means that when it rains, the area becomes saturated quickly and water collects on the trail, turning many areas into “bonus water features.” By “bonus water feature” of course, I mean the sidewalks become like little rivers and the low-lying areas become wading ponds.

Wet or dry, the garden has something for everyone.

History buffs will delight in Melbourne’s Little Red Schoolhouse near the entrance, which served as a working schoolhouse for the children of early settlers and is one of Brevard’s oldest existing structures. Those with a flair for horticulture can download the guided walking tour (see website information below), which points out some of the most notable botanical specimens along the route.
