My sister and I did the steep trail and when we got to the top we looked at the view of the city and it was awesome. We bonded laughed and reminisced on our dad who passed away. Other persons came to use the location for thinking space, some to chill and hang out. I liked it indeed.

If you like plants and gardening, you will like this garden. Situated on the largest acreage in town, the garden boasts innumerable plant species and is on its way back from hurricane damage and other neglect. Beautiful place to visit.

At the entrance we were welcomed by a giant banyan tree. Close by there was the remains of a bus flattened by a tree downed by the hurricane David in 1979. The devastation was incredible, thus there was a sign with a picture of the devastation titled "David the Goliath". There was also a very interesting tree with fruits like... More

Great place to start exploring the island from, because you can walk to it easily through Roseau town centre, some beautiful old trees, good views and Jacks Walk, which is nice and easy.

Spend a couple of hours scrolling through this botanical garden which is not far from downtown. You will see many plants that were brought here to the islands from the British and the French and a very unique bamboo type circle cave that you can walk into. You will also see a bus that was struck by a tree in... More

The Gardens were included as a drive through on a tour of the island. As far as Botanic Gardens go, there was not much to see. This is certainly not a must see garden.

We spent a couple of hours here after a morning of snorkelling and other fun activities on the island. The Botanical Gardens are within easy walking distance of the cruise port - if you are unsteady on your feet the biggest problem will probably be the pavements and the roads, but this is to be expected in Dominica. On entering... More

Pleasant area with a rather limited selection of flowers and fauna. The bamboo "circle" is probably the coolest part of the gardens; the tiny enclosure for the birds is pretty weak. If you are in e area it is worth visiting for aw minutes, but this is definitely not somewhere you should pencil in for more that 30 minutes or... More

We stayed at Fort Young Hotel, this is an easy walk from hotel through Roseau to the gardens. It was busy on the day we went due to cruise ship being in port, but nevertheless worth doing if you've got a couple of hours to kill.

We visited the island for a day on a cruise and decided to visit the gardens. It was unfortunately raining but did not spoil our enjoyment of the gardens, which are beautiful , even though we're were not able to appreciate the gardens at their best. Learnt about the plants and trees that were native to the island , saw... More
