This was a great, urban park. The trees were awesome, and some of the flowering plants wonderful. It is not what I expected as a 'botanical garden', but it was worth it. Lots of locals playing 'football', and even some cricket. Stumbled upon some locals from one of the churches, practicing hymn singing - hauntingly beautiful. Was a bit disappointed... More

Went on a cruise. Very easy to fins. Take the road road directly behind the Pier and walk for 10 minutes. Open from 6am. Entrance is free. We walked around and then walked the trail up the steps and path to the top of morne Bruce hill. Great view Would agree is more of a park but if you like... More

As someone said, this is more a park. You just stroll along and different plants are pointed out. There are some very different plants and trees there. Nice view of the harbor. You can't see the 2 parrots very well. If you don't enjoy flowers and plants, don't go. I thought the bus that was crushed under a tree during... More

As noted by others, more like a park than a botanical garden -- lots of grass between plants. Well manicured grounds. The highlight for me was the presence of a flyable enclosure which contained Sisserou parrots, the endangered national bird of Dominica. Also of note was a natural "shelter" composed of bamboo which looks much like a house.

Part of a general park area, Unexceptional but worth a visit. Especially the tree which flattened a bus (fortunately unoccupied at the time). Adjacent to the National cricket ground.

Visited the gardens while here on a cruise stop during a tour. Gardens are so interesting, Many old trees. One of which crushed a school bus during a hurricane. Flowering plants in bloom were beautiful. Lawns well manicured. They use many plants that grow in Dominica as natural health aides. Nutmeg trees, coffee bean trees, a plant that helps migranes,...

when our bus tour arrived it was pouring buckets so there was no option to get off the bus. As the bus advanced and stopped a bit by bit the tour guide would elaborate on the gardens including the bus and tree with lots of roots sticking down. see all the pics taken and posted on Trip Advisor.

If you're in the Roseau area and you're a nature enthused then drop in as the well manicured lawns will call your name. Even if it's just a quick stroll or a drive through you can still enjoy this lush garden of flora and fauna in all its glory. I captured some beautiful photos and loved how the sunlight rays...

It's at least 40 acres, and includes many many imported and local species. A really nice place to visit if you like plants and trees.

This is a very scenic area. However I'd recommend it only to persons who appreciates nature and other plants. There are different assortments of plants and it is also home of Dominica's national bird.
