Pinecrest Gardens, the site of the old Parrot Jungle on Red Road in the Village of Pinecrest, is more than a beautiful tropical garden. It could also be considered the Village’s downtown. Since the Village’s borders are US 1, Red Road, 136 Street and 88 Street, there weren’t many areas to create a Village Center when the Village first incorporated in 1996. Today, Pinecrest Gardens hosts a weekly farmer’s market, a jazz series, classical concerts, art exhibits, plays, a horticultural series, movie nights, food tastings, and so much more. Couple it with the Village Community Center and the Library and it is definitely the place to hang out in Pinecrest.
