It was a cool experience. We went there when it was a mango parade. It was about 60 different mangoes. Also a lot of local food and live music. People was selling hand made soaps and other island stuff. It was real fun!

It's a nice walk through the gardens. I'm not a huge fan of Botanical Gardens in general, but the guidebook they give you has a lot of information about the structures on the property that kept me engaged.

We stopped here as part of a guided tour of the island, They have a very good map that you use as a self-guided tour. Lots of details about the plants and the grounds.

It was just the place to get out of the sun! Our group took a tour from the knowledgeable guide and enjoyed strolling the gardens mid-day. There are good historical exhibits to complement the lovely plantings and the creek-side. We took a picnic and greatly enjoyed the quiet hospitality. The gift shop is also nice! I hope they get to...

The gardens were a great place to learn some of the sugar mill history of St. Croix. The $8 self guided walking tour allows you to see some cool ruins and interesting plants. The tour took us about an hour and we practically had the place to ourselves. Some of the signs/markers were not clear or easy to find which... More

We visited in June, and we were blown away. This botanical garden is a creative mix between historical ruins and buildings and lush, beautiful gardens. Plants growing in the ruins were wonderful, what a way to see the flora and fauna! We lived learning about the estate and the plants. Would live to have had more time and energy to... More

Love walking through botanical gardens and had high expectations for this one. Was a little disappointed in some of the areas as it looks as if the plants needed some attention, like watering. Also, no clear trails to follow.

It was a bit tricky to get to. Most standard island tours never get here, so we took a taxi. I'm so glad we made the effort, because the multitude of unique plants beautifully scattered among plantation ruins was stunning. I felt like I was lost in a gothic novel set in the West Indies. The entrance fee ($6.00 for... More

We are big fans of botanic gardens of any kind and St. George Village didn't disappoint. While certainly not the most manicured or diverse garden we've seen, we still thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. If you're into history, there are a lot of remnants and interesting information about the history of the plantation that was once here. The plant selection... More
