“A Beautiful and Historic Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We just visited St. George Village Botanical Garden again to attend the annual Christmas Spoken Here event. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, and we noticed some new landscaping efforts that further highlight more of the planation ruins that dot the gardens.
The gift shop remains a wonderful place to find special items for yourself or for gifts.
I'd like to point out the tucked away toward the back of the property is a small, but interesting
museum exhibit with a scale model of the property as it was originally.

“loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Beautiful gardens built of the ruins of an old plantation, very interesting and informative. We learned a lot about the names of plants that we had seen and knew nothing about. The ruins were very interesting too.

“Off season not the best time to visit?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I'm guessing we hit this at the wrong time in all fairness to them. My wife and I were the only 2 people there the day we went. The grounds were a little untidy, the paths needing some sweeping and trimming back mostly, cut the grass and some of the plants had dead foliage to be removed. They have some very good examples of tropical plant life of all types though. You do have to keep in mind that this is a preserved ruins of an old plantation, so some things will look old and dirty. As is the same everywhere on the island the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would come here again in the peak season to see if it is cleaned up a little better.

“History and Plants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Great place to walk around and see the old buildings and all the varieties of trees and plants. Be sure to put on bug spray and wear a hat or long sleeves and pants as there can be many flying insects.

“Great gardens, but a little hard to find.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

The gardens were nice. But, it was a little hard for us to find. If you are looking for an address for your GPS look for George Rd. However once we found it, we thoroughly enjoyed the gardens and the historic sites. We spent about two hours enjoying the flowers and scenery.
