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 flock of wading flamingoes is a favorite here. The on-site restaurant (Carrabba's), bakery/dessert spot (St. Pete Bakery), and hands-on kids' museum (Great Exploration) make this place a family favorite.
