We enjoyed our afternoon hiking around this beautiful preserve. Its off the road on the way to Tippy's. It was informative & enjoyable. We especially liked the fresh water pond & climbing up Ethans tower. Its in the early stages of development so I can only imagine what they can do in time with all the acreage still available.

The Leon Levy Preserve has really done an amazing job of creating and developing this preserve. It is a must see to understand the vegetation and more indicative of the area.

Nice way to learn about the island, it's history, plants, and society. Just make sure you go before it's too hot.

This was a great diversion on a sunny afternoon. A lot of love and expertise was put in to developing this preserve. The staff were very helpful, wish we had longer to enjoy this beautiful place.

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.

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
