History
In 1903, a plumber by the name of George Turner, Sr. purchased the six acres that would become a world-famous botanical attraction. Three generations of the Turner family continued the vision that created this unique tropical garden, with its flowing ponds. Rooted in a 100-year history, Sunken Gardens was designated a Local Historic Landmark in 1998. The City of St. Petersburg purchased Sunken Gardens in 1999 with the goal to preserve the historic botanical garden and provide cultural and educational opportunities.

    Beautiful venue!

    It was absolutely beautiful the day of our wedding! We held our ceremony on the North Lawn. The staff made it go flawlessly. I'm so glad I had their help to coordinate our flower delivery and violinist, I would not have had time to do everything myself! They had everything set right on time, but were flexible if we needed a few extra minutes. Overall they were very helpful and we loved the gardens!

    Dream Wedding

    Our wedding couldn't have gone more perfect! This was a beautiful venue for a wedding. The pictures after the ceremony turned out fabulous. The park was open to visitors, but never felt packed or uncomfortable taking pictures.
