My wife and I thought the gardens were a worthwhile use of our time. Although not really very extensive, the gardens do contain a remarkable variety of plant life. We toured the area in a little more than an hour but more time could have been spent if we had gotten there earlier. We have been told that it may... More

We had a nice time visiting the well-kept botanical gardens. Beautiful flowers and grounds. The self-guided tour brochure was informative and easy to follow.

The staff, especially Denise in the Gift Shop, provide great information on the garden and about St Croix. Beautiful spot. Great place to leisurely walk and enjoy the garden and visualize the way it must have been in it's hay-day. According to St Croix standards, those doing the renovations have done an excellent job. As a side note, restrooms are... More

Not worth the $8 per person it cost to get in. Unfriendly people, grass needed cut, no plants to speak of no markings for trails to follow. Mostly old trees and ruins and even some of the trees were in need of attention. I'm guessing at one time the caretaker really care about this place but whoever is caretaker now... More

Very nice place to visit, very beautiful foliage and some cool ruins and stuff around, Great photo opportunities everywhere. But bring the bug spray! Unfortunately we were there shortly after a light rain and the mosquitoes had a buffet smorgasbord. I would say a must see though.

Even if it rains they have plants with leaves big enough to stand under so you don't have to get wet! Amazing plants and the old ruins add to the overall experience.

A totally volunteer-supported endeavor, combines flora and ruins of a colonial sugar cane plantation. Interesting historically and agriculturally.

The self-guided tour is interesting but not exciting.We were the only ones in the whole garden plus the employees who didn't seem to excited to see us. They just carried on with their own business sitting in front of the gift shop talking away. You see a ton of crazy fruits and interesting trees/plants. It was a nice intimate activity... More

The botanical has more than 1500 native and exotic species and varieties, are established in and around the restored buildings and have also ruins of a 19th century Danish sugar cane plantation. Our guide was working and living in St Croix for years and she was very good and made the tour very informative. She said that this botanical Garden... More

On a weekend trip to St Croix, a group of friends and myself had a chance to stop at the St. George Botanical Gardens. What a great surprise. This not my typical type of stop, but this was worth it. We were able to spend time with the director (David) who knows more about the island and the Caribbean than... More
