It’s Kind of Like an Outdoor Art Museum
If you’re looking for a Key West activity that’s perfect for the nature lover, look no further than the Key West Garden Club at West Martello Tower. An oasis of lush gardenscapes and fascinating plant species, you’ll be sure to get your fill of beautiful specimens from orchids to cactus. For some of the highlights, see our Review & Photo Essay which features the plants.
And while the flora are noteworthy in and of themselves, we feel the space wouldn’t be quite as magical if it didn’t have the assortment of lovely sculpture using all kinds of media. Below are our highlights of the Key West Garden Club Sculpture. Enjoy!
Thar She Blows!
Tree Trunk Sculpture
Concrete Disc with Driftwood
Coral (not technically sculpture but beautiful texture)
Lady of the Palms
Red Brick Man
Not Pictured: There is a sculpture that’s not much to look at, but you must listen for it. It’s a series of upright metal whistles on the oceanside, that emit flute-like sounds with the ocean breeze. Worth noting.
So there you have it, some of the sculptures and textures you’ll find at the Key West Garden Club. If you’re visiting, we can’t recommend this place enough for a nice stroll or even a picnic on a beautiful day.
The Garden Club is maintained by volunteers, so please consider making a donation before you leave!
