One place that's getting better with time, though, is the Fruit and Spice Park. Just recently, the park has added the brand-new Mango Café so you can enjoy the annual Redland Summer Fruit Festival from the air-conditioned comfort of its indoor climes. After a fresh Floribbean lunch, let your kids run loose in the park for face painting, a watermelon-eating contest, pony rides, sack races, and a mini fishpond. You can kick back and relax or hip-shake to the sounds of the South Florida Bluegrass Association. Then grab some lychee ice cream or a mango milkshake from a vendor, and marvel at the locally grown produce, rare fruits, Schnebly Redland's wine, and exotic plant life.
