Pan’s Garden takes its name from the bronze statue of Pan of Rohallion that graces the garden’s entrance pool.

The Civic Association Beautification Committee took a tour of the garden and held their meeting there.

Designed by Frederick MacMonnies in 1890, the statue depicts Pan – the ancient god of shepherds who protects and guards the flocks – in idealized human form playing his enchanted pipe of reeds. It is a fitting name and symbol for a garden that serves to protect and showcase Florida’s indigenous plants.

The one-half acre garden features over 300 species of native trees, shrubs, grasses and wild flowers, many of which are endangered.
