Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve is a magic place that is unique. The Botanist (Andy?) is very enthusiastic. The layout is excellent and there is lots to see. There is up and down and side-hill climbing so walkers, canes, etc. probably aren't a good idea. We spent a delightful two plus hours there and thoroughly enjoyed it. Strongly recommend a... More

We had spent a lovely morning walking through the preserve. We could tell that a lot of thought, effort, time and money has been put into this place and the result is a beautiful experience.

25 acre National Park, pretty new. Great place. Small, near Tippys. Really is a botanical garden. All plants native to the area. Really worth the effort and time.

your opportunity yo learn all about the native plants of the Bahamas is perfectly presented to you when you wander round the trails at the Leon Levy Preserve. The walk is a delight as you see these different plants in a beautiful landscaped area of Eleuthera. Whether you live here as we do or are just visiting you must visit... More

Very enjoyable garden setting as you walk on a path through the various habitats of Eleuthera. Very friendly staff and interesting walk, even if your not a plant person. Besides the plants, you learn a little island history. Great outing.

I've been coming here for 8 years and didn't know about how nice this place is. You can schedule a tour or walk in and you'll get a great tour of all the plants you'll find in the Bahamas. They have a medicinal section, a water section, food section, etc. Also, they have a great little pond with turtles. They've... More

This place is extremely interesting and educational. Many times I found myself saying "I never knew it looked like that!" Hundred or more species of plants and trees properly labeled in a natural setting and grouped by the period that they were introduced to the island. A guide is available at the center to answer any questions and parking is... More

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
