This place is beautiful! Called sunken as parts of the gardens are as much as 15 feet below the street level, Orchids and trees abound. Birds, lizards and turtles complete the scene with some wonderful ponds and flowers everywhere. Really worth a stop!!

It was a warm day, but a breeze kept our stroll comfortable. Great variety of beautiful plants -- and great spots for memorable photos. Nice gift shop as well -- and plenty of parking available.

This is not a bad way to spend about an hour. I was a bit sad there was not more local stuff but for the admission price it's an enjoyable hour.

Gardens in the city? This was relaxing, if not a bit too hot on a Florida still summer day. Just wish there was more information on the various plants & flowers available if you did NOT but their book.

These gardens are quite nice. I found the walkway a bit of a challenge pushing my friends wheelchair. It's mostly even but there are a few inclines that I would be difficult for someone not as strong as I am. I would certainly return. I...More
