It's a very nice little park with a lot of exotic plants, very private looking. Will put you in meditative mood easily, very tranquil atmosphere.
An amazing variety of exotic plants, lush tropical jungle, and interesting birds, turtles, and other small animals. Sunken Gardens, restaurants, and the parking lot all fit on this two-city block plot. But like the Tardis, it is MUCH bigger inside than it is on the outside. It's conveniently located in the heart of St. Petersburg, about a mile and a... More
Sunken Gardens is an older attraction that shows some signs of age, but is still a relaxing and pleasant walk through beautiful trees, vines, shrubbery and flowers with some caged tropical birds and koi ponds. An hour is adequate and the cost is minimal.
An old-time Florida tourist attraction that has been preserved by the city of St Petersburg. The gardens offer an escape from the over commercialized tourism of the 21st century. It's a place to unwind. The adjacent Carrabas restaurant is a great place for dinner.

I really wasn't expecting much thinking that this would be a touristy sort of thing. The gardens were wonderfully conceived and have been beautifully kept. We really enjoyed strolling through the winding pathways checking out the tropical setting of birds and plants. Worth doing.
If you were in the area, I think this would be nice little place to get away from the hustle and bustle. For me I drove from Orlando to visit St. Petersburg and it's surroundings so didn't make it worth while.
