Fodor's Review

A cool oasis amid St. Pete's urban clutter, this lush 4-acre plot was created from a lake that was drained in 1903. Explore the cascading waterfalls and koi ponds, and walk through the butterfly house and exotic gardens where more than 50,000 tropical plants and flowers from across the globe thrive amid groves of some of the area's most spectacular palm trees. The on-site restaurant and hands-on kids' museum make this place a family favorite.

Nice park-like attraction

A very enjoyable park-like garden spot, with lots of exotic trees, flowers, and plants. Also has nice ponds and waterfalls as well as a butterfly collection. Very enjoyable place to wander and commune with (OK, planned) nature. Well worth a visit.
