Cool park and fee helps the park system. Its a nice walk and something different than the beach and water activities. The blue Iguanas are fun and they have cool Caribbean shirts in the gift shop for 20$

We are staying at the north end so the trip was not to far but if I was in Georgetown I might of been disappointed. The orchids are best from April to October and being January there were only 2 in bloom. The grounds truly need some work but the flower were pretty and they had an abundance of cactus... More

I checked TA and discovered the garden thanks to other reviewers. We have amazing beaches in Florida and i wanted to do something different than hit the sand on our cruise stop. Royal Caribbean didn't offer an excursion to the park so I called ahead and rented a car from Andy's. A driver came and picked me up near the... More

My wife and I were up in the north part of Seven Mile Beach (Plantana Condos, separately reviewed), had a rental car, and knew we had to visit this site. We both love nature, plants, etc. It took about 45 minutes, relatively scenic drive, to reach the Park. Parking was plentiful right outside the visitor center, where a very friendly... More

We walked through some of the park because we were on a tour we didn't have a lot of time. I wish I could have seen more flowers, it was mostly palms and greenery. The blue iguanas were pretty cool. We were able to get very close to the one who was about 3 feet long.

We had an excellent tour through the park while on a tour with Shirley Roulstone of Caymanroutes. She pointed out rare animals that we wouldn't have noticed otherwise. I'd recommend this park for a visit.

I use TA to plan far away vacations; our trip to Grand Cayman was no exception. This Garden was on our list of places to visit. And it did not disappoint! See pics. Walking around at our own rate, using a map, was relaxing and fun. We were on "iguana" watch the whole time. Sometimes they were on the walking... More

These gardens are must for bird watchers, plant lovers, floral and palm enthusiasts as well as the unique opportunity to see the blue iguana!! These are beautiful gardens in which to wander about the many paths - the palm garden was a highlight for me where countless numbers of gorgeous palm trees are labelled for one's learning- we did see...

I love flowers and thought this would be a great place to see local flowers. We were there at wrong time of year to experience the full potential of what they have to offer. But if you looked around we saw some really pretty flowers and we got the opportunity to see Blue Iguanas along with other iguanas. While working... More

This was a GREAT place to visit. Okay, so there were no orchids in bloom. There were so many other things to look at that I was okay with this (although I would like to see the blooming Ghost Orchid next time)! My trip was to see a Blue Iguana and I was not disappointed. I saw many Iguanas including... More
