We had a great time walking the trails and learning about the indigenous plants and animals to Eleuthera. The path was well marked and the signs were informative and helpful. The observation tower was a welcome place to stop and enjoy the sights and sounds. Will plan on taking the kids the next time we visit Eleuthera.

The Leon Levy Preserve is an oasis of tranquility. Just walking in, one sees the beauty and care with which the preserve is maintained. The trail system is wonderful and of course there are thousands and thousands of plants of all varieties. The staff is friendly and informative. This is a real jewel. We greatly enjoyed our visit.

If you are interested in flora and fauna, and like to go on trails through the forest, please don't miss this place. It is odd that you find such a well-done, clean, newer park near Governor's. Staff was lovely and helpful. You could spend hours here if you love looking at birds and vegetation. There are nice guides that identify... More

The preserve is interesting with good variety of plants. Well laid out. We recently visited as a shore excursion from our cruise ship. Our guide was well versed in plant life and had tons of information. I am not sure how long she has worked with groups, she would go from one area to another and begin talking before many... More

I am very sorry to hear that your tour was anything but superb. That said, I appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your experience . We need feedback to identify areas that require attention. We are still in the process of training our guides, but we have never had a guide lose or leave tour participants behind.... More

This nature preserve is well worth seeing. It lets you know just how fragile these islands are and what we should be doing now to preserve them.If you need a break from doing every beach try a visit here, the trails are all interesting and a climb of the observation tower is awesome. The cost is under $10 and you... More

I and my family toured the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve in January 2015 as part of our first trip to the Bahama's. I took lots of pictures and was fascinated by the birds and plant descriptions and materials viewing medicinal plants and other plant uses. I went back a second time taking more pictures of birds and the facility.... More

Absolutely one of the best nature reserves and arboretum we've ever been to, with an incredible guide, Ethan, whose passion for the plants made us stay twice as long as intended!
