I never knew there were so many varieties - we all picked our favorites. Lovely. Free. At the edge of a great beach-park. Go!

Over 500 species of palms and cycads in 2 acres. It is small, but you can spend a good hour there if you are into palms and cycads. Beautifully planned an well maintained. Free!!!

Lots of various palms. They are working on updating signage and updating surrounding landscaping. Nice place for a stroll or just to relax on a bench & take in the beauty.

A great place to walk and learn about the palm trees in our area. Located on the downtown waterfront of St. Petersburg. From there, you can visit more of the parks and famous Vinoy Hotel.

This is a beautifully maintained small park. Paved walkways meander through the park. Palms are all identified as to species, etc. It's well worth the visit with plenty of parking and right on the waterfront.
