If you want to learn about Palms

My friend is the arborist of this area and I have learned so much from how he cares for them. It is beautiful and so worth taking a leisurely shaded stroll.

Great park with a huge variety of palms. Best of all its in a beautiful waterfront setting. Very convenient to the downtown St Pete scene. The arboretum's plants are well marked with plaques containing common names. The walking trails and layout are well done. Good job St Pete!

This is a small palm tree garden in a large waterfront park. It is free to see and is close to downtown.

We did not expect to see this on our trip, but we were very pleasantly surprised! The palms are breathtaking. Some are so big that it is staggering. All kinds of palms from every continent (obviously not Antarctica though) in one place! Well worth a look.

This free, local park has a superb collection of palms large and small from around the world. It has the most varied assortment I have ever enjoyed in one place. We purchased an Italian Ice in front of the Vinoy Hotel, wandered by the sailboats, admired the water views, people watched, wandered through the palm arboretum. We then walked along... More

This is a palm arboretum just west ofthe water on the northside of st Petersburg. Plants are well labeled and mature. Brick paths. See the plants; look at the bay; and see the skyline.

And it is right under everyone's noses. Want to learn about palm trees? Want an mid-city oasis? Then talk a walk in this sweet little park off of North Shore. If there is a breeze who will be entertained by the music of the swaying palm trees.

I love this small, charming park so much that I was married here. You'll find more than 500 palms of 150 varieties growing in a small, well manicured park featuring a winding, paved walkway and views of the gulf. The trees are labeled and you will be amazed at the beauty and variety. This park is a part of nearly... More

This is essentially a figure eight of sidewalks through a large variety of palm trees representing species from across the tropics. Not a destination, but if you love palms this is nice to stroll through if you're at the park anyway.

This tiny park contains an large variety of palm trees. A little park on the shore, it's a nice place to pass a couple of hours (if you Really like trees). Signs ID most of the species with brief details such as habitat, origin, fruits. We spent 3 hours, but a casual visitor would probably have their fill in about... More
