We stopped here on a tour. There really didn't seem like much to see. There is a school bus that was squashed during a hurricaine that you can see.(No one was hurt)and that was different but other then that I really thought it was a waste of time.

If you are in Roseau, take a few minutes to visit the Botanical Gardens. There are several very unusual tropical plants here, including the Cannonball Tree. There is a nice visitors center, and a large cage filled with native parrots. The back end of the property holds research labs, and is one of two places in which they are trying... More

Tried to see the local parrot, but he was bashful. :) Berky our guide was great in pointing out different plants and flowers. DH and I love the nature stuff, so enjoyed hearing about different plants -a big... More

We drove through the garden on the Bumpiing Tour with Rosalind as a guide. It was pouring down rain so we did not get out and walk the garden. However, Rosalind hd the driver stop several times to show us the different trees. She was amazing in that she knew not only the common name but the Latin name as... More

The gardens have very nice landscape with many plants, flowers and trees. There is even a remnant from Hurricane David in '79, a brand new school bus just delivered and crushed by a tree that fell on the bus. Very nice as part of a tour to visit.

The Botanic Gardens are a must-visit when in Roseau. The gardens are huge, and serve as playing fields, picnic grounds...you'll find weddings, live music (especially during Creole Festival), and a nice open space to escape from the sometimes noisy streets of Town. Be sure to check out the parrot sanctuary and ask about the captive breeding facility for the endangered... More

While the area is beautiful, there are few to no informational signs. You can walk through in about 30 minutes. Maybe a good idea to take a botanical guide with you.

I visited the gardens as part of my cruise excursion. We were only scheduled for 15 minutes of viewing, which was very rushed. I would've loved to actually see the parrots and spent time wandering. Maybe I will get to do that next time.
