It is worth a visit for 1 - 1.5 hours, maybe more for more gardening knowledgeable visitors. It takes good advantage of a natural sinkhole, and is well kept and attractive. There is a separate gym/play area for kids that costs an additional amount, making it a good place for families to spend the afternoon or rainy periods. Being an... More

Walked in a very nice smiling young man helped me and told me all the info I needed to know. The gardens were very nice for a leisurely stroll. Mostly large tropical plants. Not a lot of flowering things. Lots of little lizards running around and beautiful ponds with huge Koi fish. You can buy a bag of fish feed... More

I have been in this area for many years, and there is no place like Sunken Gardens. Even as a small kid, I would marvel at the lush tropical gardens, exotic cultivars and colorful tropical birds that lived there. They also have a nice gift shop. It's another great St. Pete retro attraction that never grows old if you love... More

Lovely way to pass an hour. lovely for a stroll around and take refuge from the heat. Nice coffee shop around the corner. Not really on a must see list, detour only if you have time on your hands.

A pleasant place for a stroll. Loaded up with tropical plants and trees. A few birds and fish ponds add to the interest level. Trails are paved making it easy for disabled to get around.

Bought a annual family membership from groupon for $25. My mom and sister live in Florida, so they will use it all year. 6 people are allowed at once with the membership, which was exactly the number in our group. Wheelchair accessible. Had a great time looking at all the Florida vegetation and different gardens. Spent approx. 45min to 1... More

Enjoyed the peacefulness of the gardens. Something for all to enjoy at the Sunken Gardens. The staff were nice and very helpful for first time visitors. The gardens were well maintained and paths clear of debris. Plenty of water features and then loved waling through the bird sanctuary. Spent the whole morning there and it was enjoyable.
