“The Wonder Gardens would not be here if not for the support of the community. We recognize that our community supports us with attendance, memberships, donations, business & educational partnerships and charitable support. Many Bonita Springs residents have not visited the Gardens since we have improved and added amazing , so we are excited to invite them to join the record 105,000 visitors last year and experience the Wonder our Gardens has to offer.”

In 2014, a group of local residents formed the Bonita Wonder Gardens Inc., a nonprofit organization. The City of Bonita Springs recognized the economic, cultural and historic value of this zoological park and attraction and enabled the nonprofit to purchase the property & assets from the founders, the Piper Family, saving it from potential commercial development. The property was later purchased by the City of Bonita Springs, while the nonprofit continues to manage & support all operations.
