Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum


Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum (GKPA) is a 2 1/2 acre palm and cycad arboretum located within St. Petersburg Florida's downtown waterfront parks.  It showcases well over 500 palm trees and 150 cycads. A destination for palm and cycad enthusiasts, tourists, and community residents, GKPA is a perfect place to engage visitors with the icons of the tropics

The arboretum was created in 1976 from a generous donation of stock by city resident Gizella Kopsick, who loved palm trees. GKPA is free to the public and is maintained and operated by the City Beautiful Commission  (CBC) of St. Petersburg, FL, in conjunction with the City of St. Petersburg’s Parks and Recreation Department. Over the years GKPA has encompassed leaders with visionary and knowledgeable insights which have helped define its status as the only tropical arboretum of its kind within the Western Hemisphere.
