This would be a nice place for a wedding, but not too exciting as an attraction. Lots of walking not special. There are much nicer state funded parks, with more diverse plant species and landscaping.

we have lived in St Pete for years and have never walked the gardens. this is to our shame. the gardens are a great place to tour on a sunny day. Live birds - flamingos, parrots and macaws abound. the koi ponds are fun with large koi and great plants. there ae numerous benches where you can spend as long... More

Sunken Gardens is a beautiful spot for respite in St. Petersburg. A great history, and a beautiful landmark worth visiting. Take a leisurely stroll around and see the birds, turtles, and lovely gardens! A cool respite during a hot day, and even pleasant when overcast. We visited with our in laws (who are in their 80s) -- they had an... More

My daughter's wedding was held at the Sunken Gardens on 2/18. The Gardens provided the guests with beautiful scenery and made sure that all of the details were taken care of. The staff was extremely helpful and made the day of the wedding truly stress free. The Sunken Gardens is the perfect setting for any occasion.

Good location in St. Petersburg next to various restaurants. A variety of things to see - flamingos, birds, flowers, waterfalls, fish, and greenery.

We went today with another couple and really enjoyed ourselves. They beautiful displays and demonstrations of Ikebana (Japanese Flower Arranging). The gardens are very beautiful and all of the animals and the ponds with fish were very interesting. It is quite a lovely place to sit and relax. They even had a yoga class going on as we walked through.... More

Sunken Gardens is a lovely but rather small botanical garden. The flamingos were a special treat. This is a nice place to spend about an hour in nature. I think it is somewhat overpriced at $10 per adult and $8 per senior. However, we were able to get a coupon for buy one admission and get one free in a... More

Loved walking through a beautiful rain forest with all it's beauty was an awesome experience. The grounds are impeccably taken care of. So we walked through this amazing place just being enjoying seeing all the flora and fauna. The only sounds we heard were birds. We also met beautiful parrots and flamingos. It takes about two hours to do the... More

Wonderful stroll through a tropical delight - very beautiful and relaxing. Can't speak to the value as we got in because they do reciprocal free pricing if you have your card from membership in your hometown garden society.
