“Fantastic!”

Absolutely fantastic. Great for the wandering tourist or avid botanist. Lots of variety. Would definitely recommend going with a guided tour to get the full experience.

“Worth a visit on St Croix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is a nice botanical garden with a variety of local plants and some old plantation ruins as well. Easily a two hour visit. Easy to get to and centrally located more or less. The Mango Melee annual event is awesome with Mango exhibits, Mango eating contest, some lectures, all kinds of street food stands, local craft vendor stands, kids games, music and more. Go early to get a decent parking spot.

“Local flora”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is a self guided tour of local flowers, trees, and shrubs. There is a nice little gift shop whose proceeds help to support the garden.

“Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

A gloriously beautiful place to explore, photograph and enjoy all the beauty that these lush gardens of St. Croix offer. The maintenance is spot on and the caretakers do a wonderful job keeping everything trimmed, watered and landscaped along the paths to enjoy.
