Once a miniature golf course, this two-acre waterfront park just north of the Vinoy in St. Petersburg became a lush showcase of palms in 1976.
Location: St. Petersburg
Open: Sunrise to sunset
Named for its primary benefactor, the arboretum was dedicated on May 16, 1977, Miss Gizella Kopsick’s 100th birthday. More than 500 palms and cycads represent over 100 species from around the world. See their website for a species list. Guided walks are offered.
