I love walking at the Botanical Gardens. It is never the same, the gardens constantly change. I always take visitors to the area there and they are amazed all that beauty is free. Oh ... and if you are into the game Pokémon Go it is a great place to go catch some!

Beautiful gardens with identification signs as you walk past fountains and small water falls and streams. A wedding garden area is in the center. Flowers and wildlife. Every type of palm tree is there, with identifier signs. There are two large bridge's and some unpaved trails. Enjoyable and relaxing.

Beautiful, peaceful place. A hidden gem for Pinellas county. Next time may even pack a lunch to eat in the gardens.

Set aside a few hours to relax and enjoy this wonderful oasis in the middle of Pinellas County. The Christmas lights during the Holidays are not to be missed ! The rest of the year, it is still a beautiful example of flowers, plants, butterflies, birds and all sorts of wildlife ! Have your camera ready to record these encounters... More

My husband and I visited in December, during our very first Christmas in a warm place. We saw an advertisement for the Christmas Lights Display at the Botanical Gardens, and thought how much fun it would be to roam around in our shorts while checking out the lights :) We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the gardens...which are themselves just...
