Sunken Gardens is a botanical paradise in the midst of a bustling city. As St. Petersburg's oldest living museum, this 100 year old garden is home to some of the oldest tropical plants in the region.
The Gardens currently contain over 500 species of tropical and subtropical plants amidst pools and cascading waterfalls, lushly planted in a collection of more than 50,000 tropical plants and flowers. They include a Japanese garden, cactus garden, and butterfly garden, and Chilean flamingos. The garden atmosphere is peaceful and many of the plants are quite large due to their long history of protection and cultivation.
Seniors (62+) $6
Children (2-11) $4
Free parking is available on site. All areas are handicap accessible. Wheelchairs are available free of charge on a first come first serve basis.
Gardens may be closed due to inclement weather. I will post an update the night before ONLY if cancelled.
