Respite from the hustle & bustle

A lovely spot away from all the traffic and noise. Interesting plants and animals and benches to just sit and relax. My wife and 80 something year old mother both enjoyed it.

Ok for what it was. Went on a very hot day and I wouldn't recommend that. Not at all for children. Nothing to interest them

The park is kind of rundown and the ponds’ water stinks. It was a nice stroll with some nice scented flora and some history about Sunken Gardens. I recommend this attraction with reservations,...

We went to the Sunken gardens with our toddler and he loved running around the gardens, feeding the fishes, talking to the parrots and dancing with the guy that played the traditional Drum thing. I can't remember the name of the instrument but that guy was awesome. Don't forget to tip him please. The musics are really worth any dollar... More

A throwback to simpler times. A great place for families with small children. A wide variety of Florida plants & trees. Educational but fun.
