A very well maintained Botanical Gardens and a lovely place for a quiet stroll in the morning before it gets too hot. It actually opens at 6 am if you are a Bird Watcher and want to get there early.

A beautifully maintained botanical gardens. There is good security so you can wander around at will. However, guides are available if you prefer that. We didn't and just enjoyed looking at the birds and plants. Saw a crested Antilian Humming bird, male and female. There are st Vincent parrots bred in the park too although always better to see in...

My Grandfather worked in the gardens as an agricultural student in the 30's. It's always great to go back and see how things have grown and changed. Ask for St. Clair. He's the man!

This gardens is 249 years old and it is well maintained and beautiful. Our tour guide Ian John was great. He was knowledgable and was able to convey that knowledge in a why that interested our 6 year old. It was a great family afternoon. There is a small entry fee but well worth it. If your a pirate fan... More

Lovely gardens & very good guide. Felt the caged parrots looked unhappy. Very old trees & plants can't say more as this covers it. Well worth a visit

This is a sweet place/garden and good for a relaxing walk. The walk through the botanical garden is not exhausting and takes about 40-60 minutes if you're walking without a guide. Here you'll see many exciting and different trees and plants, and you don't need to be interessed in it. I am not interessed in trees or plants at all,... More

We visited here in June 2014. It was a beautiful, peaceful spot to spend a few hours and relax - doesn't feel like you're a 10 minute walk from Kingstown. We got a taxi from town which was a mistake - it's a really easy walk up past the hospital and just follow the main road for 5-10 minutes or... More

We were very disappointed with our treatment here today by the staff. We'd been told before it was quite small & you didn't need a guide so paid the entrance fee $10 but declined the guide which costs exta $10. When I then asked the lady in reception if there was a map or if she could tell me which... More
