Beautiful Florida Gardens

The walking trails are relaxing with plenty of plants and wildlife showcased. They even have garden sales so you can take a piece of nature home with you.

I was excited about my first visit here after purchasing a Groupon for a year membership. I was disappointed. It's very small and lacks variety. I have been to other botanical gardens where there is no admission fee and they are much more varied and interactive. My year membership didn't help much since I only used it the one time... More

I have been to botanical gardens where I have not even had to pay entrance. I would expect much more square footage, variety and interactivity. The year membership is at a great rate now at $9 one may think. But when there's little to see then a year membership becomes needless.

While visiting St. Pete Beach for a long weekend, we thought it would be nice to stop and see the Gardens for a short while before our dinner reservation in St. Petersburg. 4:30 was listed as their closing time online and we arrived at 4:07. We were greeted at the visitor entrance center by a less the friendly young girl... More

This is a great place for a quick respite from the city. Lovely tropical gardens. Priced just perfectly, at only $8 for adults. I think it took us about an hour to see everything, going at a leisurely pace.

We visited here today with our 85 year old mother. It is a perfect walk for the elderly. The paths meander around beautiful flowers, waterfalls, and palms. There are shady and sunny areas, with benches to stop and rest. It takes about an hour to explore. The rates were reasonable. The staff was friendly. It was a great outing for... More

We found this to be interesting, beautiful and amazing to learn that is was a sink hole turned into a garden area. It was VERY humid in these gardens so take lots of water with you. It is 15 feet below street level. There were parrots that talk and perhaps this was the best part of the entire garden visit.... More

This is a very nice park with flamingos, birds, and lots of flora. It is small enough that you won't get worn out yet large enough to be of value. They have a nice little gift shop, too.

I would rate Sunken Gardens as average. I've not visited a lot of gardens in my life but I have been to better. I really liked the way it used to be years ago when I very first visited it. They had performances with live animals every day. Now they have birds in cages for you to look on your... More
