‪This is also called the Joy & Gordon Patterson Botanical Garden. It is located on the campus of the Florida Institute of Technology. You can park in the visitors spaces and admission is free.

Twelve thousand years ago, this area was a watering hole for migrating mammoths and mastodons. The Melbourne Mammoth which is currently displayed in Amherst's Beneski Museum of Natural History, was discovered along the Crane tributaries in the 1920s. Fossils including mastodon teeth continue to be found here today.

V.C. Brownlie who previously owned the land donated 40 acres to the University of Melbourne for educational purposes. When the University no longer had use for it, Mrs. Virginia Wood, Chairman of the University of Melbourne was instrumental in getting the land donated it to FIT after they pledged to maintain the natural hammock on the property and to not uproot any trees unnecessarily. In honor of their contributions, "Brownlie" and "Wood" halls were named in honor of the two women.

In the late 1950's founding university president Jerome Keuper who was a physicist at Cape Canaveral, set aside 15 acres for the garden while the campus was being built. Keuper grew over 200 varieties of Palms from all over the world along with his friend and founder of the Palm Society, Dent Smith. In recognition for Smith's contributions, a trail through the hammock garden was named the Dent Smith Trail in his honor. In 1972 the Board of Trustees of FIT formerly dedicated the botanical garden.

The students nicknamed the garden the Jungle and it is kept as natural as possible to this day. The garden has streams which are tributaries of Crane Creek and small bridges cross over the water. There is also picnic benches, a gazebo, a bamboo garden, cycad garden, butterfly garden, fountain, and a turtle pond. Benches in the garden are embossed with quotes from inspirational people such as philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche and local author Zora Neale Hurston.

At the beginning of the trail is Melbourne's oldest schoolhouse which dates to 1883. The building was the working schoolhouse for the children of early settlers and is one of Brevard's oldest still existing structures. The "Little Red Schoolhouse" was moved to the gardens in 1970.

In 2019, Joy and Gordon Patterson made a large donation to the garden and it was named in their honor. Both Patterson's teach at the School of Arts and Communication of F.I.T. and they felt a special connection to the botanical garden.

I always love discovering a new garden and this one even has a historic building. It is so refreshing to the soul to get out in nature and enjoy the clean air and beautiful plants. The fact that this all free makes it even better.

The garden is open daily from dawn to dusk. There are both paved and unpaved sections. Anyone can take take a self guided tour. If you contact the college you can arrange for a 45 minute guided tour. This tropical paradise has so much history and beauty. It is well worth it to visit this natural treasure if you are in the Melbourne area.‬

‪This is a great place to explore on FIT campus. We were able to go through the garden on a tour of the campus. The flora offers a nice array of tropical plants.‬

‪This lovely little botanical garden is free, safe and once was gorgeous. The paths are cleared but the plants have had minimal maintenance. We enjoyed wandering the curvey paths and streams as well as spotting lizards and fish. But don't expect signs, cleared overgrowth or running fountains. Lovely place in need of rescue.‬

‪A beautiful, serene garden with 15 acres of beautiful plants. There's a little turtle pond, a small schoolhouse from Melbourne's first one room school (I believe) and places to have a picnic or catch up with friends. A beautiful little gem in the middle of Melbourne.‬

‪We like finding nice surroundings as we travel to take our daily walks. This was one of our stops. It's a beautiful campus. Very quiet and green. A lot of plants and nice shade if it's hot out. It's not spectacular, but it's quite pretty and there are paths to walk around. What a gorgeous place to go to school.‬

‪Very small, not many varieties of plants, needs a thorough cleaning - there was dead vegetation everywhere. Hard to find the entrance - it was on the side of a parking lot and there is no signage to help! We were in and out in 20 minutes.‬

‪This is a nice place to walk around. I used to eat lunch here all the time when I worked on campus. There are plenty of paths and shade. The first schoolhouse in Melbourne was moved to the premises - make sure to wander around until you see it. Also a good idea to walk around the rest of campus while you are there - the large palm-type tree behind the president's office is apparently quite rare, and once Walt Disney himself asked to buy it, or so the student tour guides tell potential students. I see a couple people mention parking issues - there are more visitor spots by the president's office that usually aren't full and it is a pretty close walk.‬

‪Der Botanische Garten der Universität bietet tropischen Regenwald mit Wegen, die rollstuhlgerecht sind. Manche der Bäume könnten besser beschriftet sein, aber vielleicht sind sie für Amerikaner so selbstverständlich wie bei uns Eichen oder Buchen. Die Ruhe in der amerikanischen Hektik war ein Genuss. Tip: Die nächsten Toiletten sind in der Uni-Bibliothek gleich nebenan.‬
