The grounds are amazing and well maintained. Very easy access, clear paths and all the palms are marked with signs showing species and origin. This is a beautiful area right on the bay in St Petersburg.

This is a great walking tour to learn about the various varieties of palm trees in Florida and it overlooks beautiful Tampa Bay.

A mostly unknown little spot in North Shore Park. The palm arboretum features scores of different types of palms from date palms to cabbage palms to palms you never knew existed. It's free so it is definitely worth the visit.

While vacationing in Treasure Island, we decided to take a break from the beach for a couple of hours. This park is in downtown St. Pete and about 30 minutes away. It is right on the water and very nice place to kill an hour. Playground is great for kids up to ages12 or even 13. All of your normal... More

It is a small little place, you can walk it in just a few minutes. but it is well secluded from everything else that's happening in park surrounding. Would be a nice place for a Picnic.

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.
