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.

    Amazing Wedding Venue

    Best decision we made by getting married at sunken gardens! Love the history behind the gardens and they are truly magical! We got married on the North Lawn. The grounds are beautiful and romantic, great for pictures! The staff was so kind and professional to work with. Our wedding day went smoothly. Highly recommend this venue!

    Perfect Venue!

    I fell in love with the Sunen Gardens immediately, the tropical garden feel is so romantic and just stunning in photos. Being from Florida, we knew we wanted to make the most of this area, but a beach wedding just wasn't out thing. We LOVED Sunken. The team there is amazing, so helpful, responsive, and they know how to make sure the wedding runs smoothly. We had our wedding on the wedding lawn in February and it was gorgeous. Our reception was upstairs in the garden room, and it was all perfect. Highly recommend!!
