Beautiful spot to visit
Sep 2021 • Couples
A hidden gem! Beautiful & lush greenery with so many things to learn! Great place for casual photos. The gift shop had a ton of fun little trinkets and the staff was very friendly!

Purchased tickets on Groupon, which made it a great deal!

Pretty flowers
Sep 2021
First time visiting. It was very hot and humid. There was plenty of shade and benches where needed to sit. My favorite was the flamingos. The flowers were beautiful. More birds or wildlife would be nice. But overall a pretty place to visit.

Beautiful Gardens
Sep 2021 • Friends
Today we visited Sunken Gardens fir the first time and we were celebrating my Mom’s birthday. It is still very hot in Florida but the gardens had lots of shaded areas and benches to take breaks. The diversity of plant life is really nice and we enjoyed seeing the different parrots, cockatoos, flamingos and tortoises throughout the gardens. The only restrooms and refreshments are prior to entering the gardens and the staff let us know before we started so we were prepared. There is also a small gift shop before you enter and also is the area you walk through as you exit. The staff was nice, friendly and helpful and set the tone for a positive experience. My personal favorite thing to see in person was the rainbow eucalyptus tree featuring a rainbow of colors in its bark.

Really beautiful way to spend an hour or two in St Petersburg! The Pothos is particularly inspiring.
Worth the money to check it out.

Easy fun walk through a tropical paradise in the middle of town
Jul 2021
The old oak tree that seemed to provide shelter to this little plaza and many other plants is very special. If I lived there, I would definately have an all year pass to go anytime. I took many pics of Florida natives to plant in our own pesticide free front and back yard. Thank you for the inspiration!

Lovely botanical gardens with bonus flamingos. Enjoyed the tropical scenery and benches along the way to soak in the plants. Many photo opportunities. Small gift shop with variety of items and air conditioned lobby.

Beautiful Tranquil Spot
Jul 2021 • Family
This was a pleasant experience in a lovely setting. One forgets you are in the city. It offers a peaceful, beautiful array of a wide variety of plants. The koi are huge and colorful. The flamingos impressed the granddaughters. The Sunken Garden is a great way to spend an hour or two while in St Petersburg.

Local Treasure - don't miss it!
Jun 2021
The exotic plants, birds, fish - all of this in the center of town on a busy street - who would have even looked for this? Recommended by a local - we will certainly return.
