The Sunken Gardens are a nice way to spend a few hours. Well maintained paths meander through this tropical paradise. I recommend getting a map to follow and going in the morning when they first open. It will be a bit cooler than going during the heat of the day and we had no problems with bugs. There are some...

What a lovely place. Such a treasure for St Pete. Easy to walk trails and lots of flora and fauna for all.

Interesting botanical garden that is literally inside a sink hole near downtown St. Pete. There is also a kids museum and play area.

Found a great deal on a "family membership" so I thought what the heck. I had never heard of this place nor even seen anything about it. It truly is a hidden gem. The gorgeous flowers, trees, waterfalls and exotic animals are very relaxing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing attraction for the entire family.

A very lush garden tucked away somewhere in St Pete. Trees are tress and flowers are flowers. But it's a pretty place to walk around and kill a couple of hours

Such a beautiful place to visit. The flowers, trees, ponds and waterfalls was great to see. It is very shaded in the gardens so to escape the midday sun it is a great outdoor activity.

This is an amazing place, not only to tour, but they offer weddings and such. We visited and wandered around for about three hours. There is a tremendous variety of foliage. It is a beautiful and relaxing place to visit. Two warnings: summertime in Florida is not always the best because of the heat (though D.C. is worse!). If you... More

this is a botanical garden that was built after a sink hole was discovered. I only wish we had did it on not so hot of a day, It has a variety of things on the grounds to see. It even has waterfalls. There is a coupon for a free admission when you purchase one for $8.00.

We spent a Saturday afternoon at Sunken Gardens & had a pleasantly good time! It's a small garden, but there weren't a lot people so we took our time to enjoy all it had to offer. There's an open space where children were playing, assorted birds, beautiful trees/flowers, and ponds with fish. You can pick up a free guide all... More
