Quiet, relaxing place in the middle of the city, yet so far away in thoughts and relaxing. Nice place to have a picnic, to take out of town guests and just a get away of peace and quiet.

It was nice walk, Some interesting things to see. But I wouldn't Really call it A Garden. Because when you think of gardens You think of lots of flowers and There were more trees than Flowers. And Some Exotic Birds. But that's about all. But still makes for a nice Time.

Sunken Gardens has the look and feel of an attraction that has seem better days. It is nice and all, but is hardly on the level or the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens. They do have some very ginormous koi, but this is hardly noteworthy enough to justify a $10 admission.

It had been 42 years since we had visited the gardens. Found them more beautiful than before! Well maintained and species well identified. Great photo ops!

A garden that time has forgotten. Everything thing you can imagine in hot weather plantings. They provide you with plenty of places for sitting so you take the time to stop and smell the roses or whatever plants you like . Yes, fish ponds, birds along with the sun it makes for a beautifully calming day visit with multiple returns... More

This was our first tourist stop after we moved to the area. There is so much packed into a small area, you have to walk around twice. Loved the birds and flamingos! No big time commitment here, it's a great place to do before or after lunch at one of the areas great restaurants.

T macaws and parrots. Go,his oasis in the urban world of St. Petersburg is a true gem. Almost 100 years in the making, this garden is so peaceful and lush with mature plantings that you don't want to leave. I am a bird lover and really enjoyed the macaws and parrots. Go ,you won't regret it.

We so enjoy having a membership to this place. That way we can take the grandchildren when they visit and they all do so enjoy it and look forward to going there. They love the birds, to feed the fish and the turtles.

My sister and I were looking for one more place to visit before we left to go back to NY so on the advice of a local cousin we decided to visit and we're so glad we did. We were exhausted from our travels so we wanted a calming place to visit and not expensive. We took a well marked... More
