Beautiful botanical gardens highlighting native plants, trees and flowers. Bring water or buy some at the gift shop. In January not all of the native plants bloom, but there is still plenty of greenery to see.

Loved how much there was to see and plenty of room to stroll. We were in a guided tour of the vegetation - there just wasn't enough time to explore - but our guide was very informative. We seemed to have just missed the garden in bloom in January - November or December visit would have been better to see... More

St. George Village Botanical Garden is a relaxing easy stroll through what had been a Sugar Plantation. We saw what the village originally looked like and how the people lived and worked here. We learned the ingenuity they used to build and maintain this village. Much of the area was damaged in an earthquake about 50 years ago but what... More

Our guide was just so excellent and knowledgeable. She walked us all around the botanical garden and pointed out lots of trees and plants. It was really fascinating to know that some of the plants were native to St. Croix and others had arrived throughout their history....beginning with the early explorers right up through the centuries. She told us a... More

Nice spot for a couple hours of easy walking or resting. Taxi from cruise ship dock is about $15 round trip, and gardens $8 entry (each per person). Driver will return at set time. Can combine with other locations (eg. rum site) for a few dollars more. Can spend more time if you want to take it easy and relax.... More

Surprised at how nice the garden was for a small island. Nice tour. Takes about 1 hour. It costs about $8 or $7 seniors. Nice gift shop inside and quite a lot of history about the island and flowers around the islands.

St. George Village Botanical Garden is a 16 acre garden planted among restored buildings and ruins of a 19th century Danish sugar plantation. At the height of production, the plantation used 150 slaves for the work. That is hard to even imagine. The garden is on the VITRAN bus route going toward Frederiksted. Once you get off, it is about... More

In our travels we tend to visit botanical gardens whenever possible. We loved the area that is built around the sugar plantation ruins. Understandably, January is not prime season, even in the tropics, but we felt that the garden had many unplanted and underplanted areas. It seemed to be a work in progress, but shows much potential. Nominal entry fee,... More

This was part of a tour we did and I wasn't expecting much but it was really good! There were all kinds of plants and trees, including some unusual local varieties, plus plenty of herbs. Our guide was a really nice guy from Texas and he knew plenty of facts about the gardens and was very passionate about it. I... More
