The four acre, Sunken Gardens are over 100 years old. While you stroll through the quiet oasis in the middle of Saint Petersburg you’ll see parrots, flamingos, and over 50,000 tropical plants and flowers. Walking paths take you past pools and waterfalls through over 500 botanical species from around the world.
