This attraction was nice but I was a little let down. There were parrots in cages, a little area with flamingoes and lots of trees. The butterfly garden was really small with very few butterflies. I was hoping for lots of flowers but did not find that to be the case. I understand flowers only bloom at certain times, but... More

Nice place. My wife and I had our wedding there. Take a relaxing walk through the gardens, it is worth it.

$10 per person to enter, and it's relatively small. There’s not much signage or labeling of the various exotic plants, so it can be done in about an hour or so. Not much variety in plants compared with other botanical gardens I've been to and the most interesting parts were the snapping turtle, the flamingos, and a few pretty bromeliads.... More

I went to Sunken Gardens as a small child many years ago and decided I would like to take some family there when they visited in May. The gardens themselves are even more beautiful than I remembered. The entrance and walkways are different now. In my childhood visit I remember the walkways being normal walking trails or paths. Today, due... More

A walk through this lovely area will take you to a quiet reflective time. The gardens are beautiful all year round. There is also a Children's museum on the property.

We loved taking a couple of hours and visiting both the children's museum and the Sunken Gardens. It really is a hidden gem, and worth the visit. Bring a little extra cash to get a cute souvenir. It's really shaded, so in the Florida heat, that's a welcome relief. You can really enjoy the walk and there are benches in... More

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.
