The Sunken gardens are an unexpected treat. Set in the middle of the city but offering an oasis of calm and beauty. Not very big but full of atmosphere and tranquillity. Well worth a visit for a break from the city bustle.

Had to talk my husband into going while we were visting florida. He was pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed the walk and seeing all the beautiful plants. Great photo spots. Very lush and tropical. We love plants so we really enjoyed it.

We got married here, small and intimate ceremony on a wedding lawn, with flowers and nature all around us as decoration...we only paid entrance fee for everyone and walked in...the best if you looking to keep it simple..

Sunken Gardens is a nice place to take a walk and they have tropical plants and birds throughout the garden. The gift shop has many floral and garden items for purchase. As with any garden, the time of year dictates what is in bloom.

I am confused by the poor reviews. We knew this wasn't a Botanical Garden; however, there is beauty in all types of gardens. We just visited this week and are members of the Dallas Botanical Garden which is outstanding. The Sunken Gardens are small but extremely lush with an abundance of Palm Trees and other foliage. The Garden was well... More

We are from out of town and had a difficult time finding the Garden because of a lack of signage, but we were happy to get there! It's not very big, but very interesting. My wife (the plant lady) loved the place. A good stop if you are in the area.

This is one of St Petersburg's oldest attractions and is convenient to downtown. Although relatively small, it is a beautiful oasis of flowering plants, exotic and native trees as well as some birds native to other parts of the world. There is a gift shop on the premises. The one thing that I was disappointed in was the lack of... More

What a beautiful way to spend an afternoon. I love to take a book and a snack and take a break in the middle of the city. Well worth a visit,
