Nicely landscaped and maintained garden. Took about an hour to enjoy a leisurely walk down the paths to view the plants and flowers. Most of the birds are in cages and the price of admission is a little high.

Beautiful park you can enter and forget all about the traffic and concrete strip malls of Florida. It is beautifully landscaped and has nice paths to wander around. Look closely and you find some local critters living among the plants. They have a really nice area to have your wedding among the beautiful flowers. The only issue I have ever... More

The coolest thing about this park is you feel like you're deep in the tropics, but you are right in town. The trees are huge and amazing. The live oaks were impressive. Great color, lovely winding sidewalks, sweet little secret gardens. If your idea of an activity is to stop, catch your breath, reground, or find color in the middle... More

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
