Day trip

A small excellent park/garden with many imported plants from English colonial days. A knowledgeable local guide is very important as many of the plants are not tagged.

On an earlier visit we did the usual trips, this time we decided to walk and explore Roseau. It was one of the more friendly islands we visited and we were fortunate to find the gardens. It is more like a park and there are tourist buses driving through but it is still a tranquil place. There is a cricket... More

If you do not have a booked tour, taking a leisurely walk through the Botanical gardens is a suggestion. It is very well maintained and filled with some beautiful tropical trees. Wander to some of the back pathways and see the aviary where you can find some of the indigenous parrots of Dominica and if you are adventurous try to... More

Honestly, it just seemed more like just your average city park. There was very little information about the vegetation which is not what I would expect from a botanical garden.

The gardens sit to the east of downtown Roseau and climb up the hill behind the town. There are excellent examples of the trees and plants of the island. They do have a small aviary, where you can see the Jaco and Sisserou Parrot, albeit from a distance. The hike up is well worth the view. If you cannot hike,... More

A lovely place to wander or sit and relax. Well maintain with a good selection of plants, an aviary of parrots and Jacks Walk a climb to a viewpoint over the town. You may be lucky to watch the locals playing cricket or see school children having outdoor lessons. When cruise liners are in the gardens are busy with mini... More

If you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the little downtown area this is a nice walk. There are options to take steep stairs to the top and walk around if you choose. There's really not a lot to see here but it's serenity is a nice break from the small shopping area where you'll... More

I agree that this is not the most interesting botanical garden of the world but some corners Worth the trip. The crushed school bus is something to see, and for my part, the magic took place on the path (15 minutes steep walk) that leads to the top of the mountain. You access the path by taking the wooden stairs... More
