A well kept garden just to the back of town. Quiet and beautiful with interesting trees not indiginous to Dominica. Within reasonable walking distance from cruise ship port. If you are more energetic, take the steps for a viewing platform over the town.

Very beautiful floral garden. Large tree crashed on a school bus is impressive. Mostly just drove through, but the scenery is very lush

The Botanical Gardens are a superb 40 acres whose use has included a cricket ground. The rainfall is about 3 times that of London so with a tropical climate and a fairly sheltered position the gardes reall flourish. Well worth a visit

The gardens cover a number of acres in Roseau but situated away from the bustle of the city center. There is a wide variety of trees and shrubs (although not all clearly labeled), winding paths, a 20 minute path that leads to the top of a hill and a panoramic view of Roseau and the countryside of Dominica, a couple...

These botanical gardens are not manicured gardens but are a wide open space with a vast variety of trees, especially the banyan tree, the bamboos and beautiful palms. We were lucky enough to see several humming birds. The school bus makes a nice feature, it is good to know that no one was hurt when the tree crushed it during... More

We stopped here on the trolley train excursion and it was beautiful. Flowers and plants we had not seen before in the Caribbean. Shaded areas to rest and great birds to see

Its quiet ( except at rush hour when the cars drive through) the squished bus is a good photo spot and i believe they have some specimens of the rare Imperial parrot but not sure - there were some parrots

Nice little botanical gardens with some interesting items including the sculpture made from water bottles and the tree that fell on top of a bus in some storm or other.

From a Dominica Christmas tree with a perfect yellow flower to seeing the tree the hurricane used to flatten a bus! Oldest palm tree to swinging on a banyan tree!

We visited the island whilst on a 2 week Caribbean cruise during the Xmas holidays. ( we took a whale watching local cruise in the morning then after lunch I walked around the port area) I asked a local policeman where I could find any wifi and he directed me to a nearby colourfully decorated hotel where I had a...
