The Gardens are located outside Kingstown, about an hours ride to get there over very bumpy, steep, and twisting mountain roads. The Gardens are about 20 years old in a mountainous area. You will see a large variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees. The owner, Timothy, is a landscape designer. He gave us a brief overview of the garden... More

Amazing 20 years in the making, met the founder, Tim, upon arrival. He has been at this for the past 20 years! What an awesome discovery! But be sure to hire someone to take you here (we hired a taxi for the day) because you'll never find it otherwise. But every bit worth the trip. Beautiful, huge leaved plants and... More

The owner, Tim, greeted us and told us a bit about the gardens, he started it about 20 years ago. AMAZING plants and fauna. Some huge leaves and vibrantly colored flowers. But definitely couldn't have found it ourselves, we hired a driver and it was SO totally worth the drive from Kingstown. Just amazing.

An interesting car journey from Indian Bay took us to the heart of St. Vincent in Mesopotamia, the natural vegetation in Montreal Gardens is displayed to maximum benefit in the beautiful and stunning backdrop of the tropical forest. All the grounds are superbly maintained and the quality of care is evident in the beautiful surroundings, a definite place to visit... More

Simply beautiful! This property is a nice drive outside the "city" and well-worth the trip. The grounds were lushly covered with so many outstanding flowering plants. It is not to be missed.

This garden is an absolute gem. There are narrow paths with huge, lush plants on either side. Then you turn a corner to catch a glimpse of the beautiful scenery of St Vincent in the background or come across exotic and colourful flowers. It is definitely worth a visit. If you are a keen photographer allow yourself plenty of time!

Nobody to greet us on arrival, eventually met by the owner dressed in a vest full of holes. He could then not wait to take our money and disappear. There were no maps of the garden or other information to help our visit. There was no information on how the garden was created, nothing other than "I've got your money... More

Amazing tropical gardens high up in the St Vincent hills in the South of the island. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Long twisty steep narrow potholed approach road, for an experienced, right- hand driver no problem, others get a cab. But it is well worth the long haul, you will not be disappointed.
