Palma Sola Botanical Park (10 acres) is a botanical garden located at 9800 17th Avenue N.W. Bradenton, Florida, USA. The park showcases collections of rare palms, fruits, and flowering trees. It is open daily without charge.
The park began in 1990 when a group organized to save the Manatee County palm nursery by turning it into a botanical garden. The park is a joint venture between the Manatee County parks department and the nonprofit Palma Sola Botanical Park Foundation.
