“A nice spot to spend in a town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I live in the neighborhood where Sunken Gardens is located. It is not a "major attraction" like the Disney stuff, but it was once one of the biggies in the state. Now, it is a beautiful garden that any nature lover will enjoy. Hard to believe that it was once a sinkhole. There is a children's museum attached and 3 good places to eat as well as an ice cream shop. A beautiful place to spend an extra hour.

“Quaint but over priced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you enjoy nature, this is a sweet get-a-way for about 1-2 hours. Yet, I feel it is too over priced for what you get. Needs to be more exotic and have more attractive plants.

“An oasis in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Originally a roadside attraction in the 1920s, today Sunken Gardens is owned by the citizens of St. Petersburg. Quiet walks with exotic plants, parrots, flamingos. A place to escape the busy world in the very midst of the busy world.

“Beautiful spot to explore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Sunken Gardens is a lush garden spot that is an excellent spot for photographers to capture beautiful Florida landscapes. The fee is reasonable, everything is extremely well maintained and this is a great way to explore Florida scenery.

“SLice of Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

COme and spend some time in this lovely garden, full of tropical plants and serenity. As an added attraction there are some birds, some flamingos and a very old turtle. THe paths are paved and there are places to sit to commune with the plants. Inside is a lovely gift shop and bathrooms. THere is a daily yoga class outside and also hoop dancing and some workshops.
