We happened to read that this was a nice garden. It is more on the outstanding side! There were exhibits of plants from around the world of all sizes - from what you might have in your yard to 30ft tall. Enjoyable meandering trail with benches to rest, talk or meditate. Go see it.

I've seen this place listed many times while searching for things to do in St. Pete and finally decided to visit. Upon seeing the "old" sign, I was thinking "oh great, a run down botanical garden wanna-be", but I was very much wrong! From the outside you see nothing that might suggest a botanical garden, but once you go through... More

Talk about a hidden treasure! Inexpensive and amazing. I really recommend going there and having a wonderfully relaxing afternoon seeing what FL really is. Do it.

Beautiful landscaping and very relaxing atmosphere but if you're going to have parrots, your management should really monitor guests around these beautiful birds. Cockatoos, Amazons, and Macaws are very playful and smart animals, I can't figure out why there's only 3 old dingy toys in their cages. Also cannot figure out why your staff would not have these birds in... More

Great place to spend a few hours enjoying nature in the middle of St. Petersburg. Don't forget to bring along your camera. The tropical plants are so beautiful and very unusual. Chances are you will see plants you have never seen before.

The gardens were very nice and kept up very well. My only request is that more descriptive signage be put up for the plants. The birds are fun to watch. If you go, take bug spray, just in case. We didn't need ours, but others there said that it gets bad sometimes.
