Day with my sister

I used to live about six blocks away and had last visited back in 1982(?) but at that time things were going down hill and a place that you wouldn't go back to. So we decided to... read more

The grounds were beautiful to walk through with thriving plant life. Unfortunately, they keep half a dozen or so birds in cages which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of 5. I don't see the need for this at this type of attraction and it is just depressing really.

I used to live about six blocks away and had last visited back in 1982(?) but at that time things were going down hill and a place that you wouldn't go back to. So we decided to take a chance and go based on what we knew. And to our surprise things had changed big time. I found out that... More

This garden was one man's dream. It was willed to the state for care, and there still needs some more to be done. Although there are some paved paths, they are uneven and stop abruptly so I wouldn't recommend this as a great place for someone in a wheelchair. There's a small flock of flamingoes, but all the other birds... More

This is a nice botanical garden but not nearly as memorable as others that I have visited. It is well manicured, and has the advantage of being handicapped friendly. I was somewhat disappointed that there weren't more plants blooming. The flamingos were a surprise.

I have been to the St. Pete area often and never thought of visiting Sunken Gardens. So glad my sister suggested this place to visit. You'll see not only 100 year old palm trees but many types of plants/trees that grow well in this area. An unexpected treat -- 20 flamingos recently purchased for the Gardens. I could have spent...

Gardens are beautiful, can be very hot in the summer months. Nice paths to stroll thru and areas to sit and relax. Large variety of plants & flowers. Stroll thru the gardens and then dine at right on the premise.

Lovely botanical garden to stroll through. There are birds, butterflies and they even offer classes. We attended a orchid mounting class.

This was a GREAT attraction to see. The gardens are beautiful with a great many very interesting plants. Peaceful areas to sit in and enjoy the serenity of the gardens. Wonderful value for your money. Would have season pass if I lived in the area, so would most certainly go back again anytime I am in this part of Florida!
