The basics

Stroll along the red brick-paved walkway that winds through the park, and admire palms and cycads native to the area, and from as far away as Brazil, Tanzania, and Malaysia. Each tree includes a detailed plaque with additional information. A variety of flower beds can also be found throughout the park. Enjoy the tranquil atmosphere from the gazebo, or from one of the conversation corners with wooden benches.

The arboretum is included as part of certain St. Petersburg sightseeing tours, such as Segway tours, which will usually include other highlights in the downtown St. Petersburg waterfront area. It’s also easy to combine a visit to the arboretum with nearby North Shore Park or Vinoy Park.
