I have been coming to the st pete’s Area for the past 30 + years, and somehow have never made it over to the sunken gardens. Don’t make that mistake, it’s an excellent couple hour attraction, close to downtown and the pier and many other...More

Nice, cool place to come see plants and trees from practically everywhere. Comfortable walking trail, dotted in some areas with exotic birds (caged) and koi fish. Many of the green and flowering life forms have informative signs in front of them, but too many do...More

The name makes the place sound corny. It is anything but. It was built in a giant sink hole. It is a most tranquil and lovely spot. Parrots, flamingos and other birds reside in a man-made jungle paradise. Great for solo visits or friends and...More

I am so glad that I finally made time to visit Sunken Gardens on my last trip to St. Pete! It was so peaceful and beautiful here and I loved wandering around. It has an interesting history, and it makes me happy to know that...More
