My only complaint is that most the really pretty or interesting flowers and plants did not have names on them. Only a small of plants were labeled and the labels were rusted out. It is a very pretty place and the $10 admissions is not bad

For the price you pay for this experience, it is great!! I LOVE gardens, so this was my thing! It is a great place to walk around, let children stretch their legs and see unique animals, lots of shade!

Went here while on a family trip and everyone enjoyed it! Weather was hot but it is Florida in summer. Even my teenagers enjoyed themselves.

This is a nice garden to visit with a few different types of animals. My boyfriend loves plants and this was great for him. There are so many different types of trees, flowers and other plants. I enjoyed the colors and path ways.

Beautiful garden. I took my Mom for Mother's Day and she loved it.The garden is small enough for the elderly to walk and enjoy all the beautiful interesting flowers, plants, trees and birds too.

Beautiful botanical garden with some exotic birds. A good place to spend an hour or hour and a half with friends, family, or even a date.

We visited while on a beach vacation. It was a nice peaceful break from the sun. Easy to navigate to. Sunken Gardens does not compare to Huntes Garden in Barbados (which is a the most peaceful spot on Earth), but interesting none the less especially given its history, Be sure to look for discount coupons.

I love the jungle feel that this place portrays. Reminds me a bit like some special places in Hawaii or a scene in a “Jurassic Park” movie without all the action. Plenty of benches throughout, in case someone wanted to sit and be inspired to write a fairy tale or scary story. I’m not so sure it’s worth $10 for... More

This is an old attraction but very well kept up and very enjoyable. The gardens are beautiful and unique and anyone who enjoys gardens will like it very much. They had some interesting things to look at and experience inside as well. Also they had workshops that you could do as well. Very pleasant morning.
