They refused to sell us tickets at 4:01 pm. Depite the advertized 4:30 closing. These idiots should make it clear they really close at 4 pm

This is a pretty garden of local plants created by Turner in the 1920s. The landscaping is quite nice to behold, with benches strategically placed throughout. It's shady and cool, designed for quiet contemplation. However they have crammed large tropical birds into tiny lonely cages and people stop to shriek and squawk at them, horrible all round. And there are... More

This is a great thing to do "the morning after". Get back to nature, breathe in the fresh clean air. Use the BOGO coupon available in the map/guide of ST. Pete available pretty much anywhere. Really loved the parrots and other tropical birds. Plenty of places to enjoy a picnic lunch.

Many locals have never been here and some even think it has closed! It is very much open, well-maintained, and beautiful!!! We spent 2 hours wandering leisurely through the grounds and found it restful, relaxing and restful. Make it a definite stop when you are in the area! And be sure to stop around the corner of the building at... More

My daughter and grandson persuaded me to go with them to Sunken Gardens during their Christmas visit with me . I remembered the Gardens from many years ago, when it was a privately owned attraction where the plants were overwhelmed by a very religiously themed gift shop. Times have changed; Sunken Gardens is now owned by the city of St.... More

Stopped on our way home from a two night visit to the museums of St. Petersburg. Make sure you get the buy one get one coupon in the local tourist magazines. Took a peaceful stroll taking in the flora and fauna, most notably the Chilean flamingos. Not very busy. It has a nice gift shop as well.

A great place to take a break for a couple of hours in a beautiful, calming environment. Relatively child friendly, with birds and fish in addition to the diverse plants.
