If you are looking for a place to be one with nature, excellent conditions for a photo shoot before you get to your wedding reception, or you just want to catch up with friends away from the hustle and bustle of the city the Botanical Gardens is the place to be. If you are visiting my beauriful island please take... More

We spent an afternoon walking around with a private taxi and driver who was very knowledgeable about the plants and history of the island. The plants are rely fantastic and it is worth a visit even if it is only to see the parrots of Dominica.

If you are a frequent visitor to gardens in the UK, then this may not be what you are looking for, as it is really a public park rather than a botanical garden. Fortunately, for me, I visited on a Saturday afternoon and was treated to a well contested game of cricket involving two Domincan teams so was able while... More

Dominica's Botanic Gardens have the most unusual trees I have ever seen, even in books and film. They must be seen in person to believe then. The Gardens have beautiful flowers also. The atmosphere is so peaceful and serene. The Gardens are a place to relax, picnic, or explore. I didn't see all of the Gardens because if time constraints... More

This is another place that Pepper took us to on his little tour that he gave us after we went to Mero Beach. Maybe it was Pepper, but he knew where to go without there being a crowd. It was enjoyable and we saw many locals along with the tourist. The garden is a nice retreat within the City that... More

Beautiful place in the city. Enjoy the gardens and the 15 minute hike up Jack's Trial to the top and amazing view/lookout to the city and ocean. Go back down walking on the pavement through Mount Bruce. Beautiful! A must to get an overall view of the city!

Walked here on a damp and drizzling day from the cruise port in the centre of the promenade. Some lovely tropical trees and caged bird life. Jacks trail is a 20 minute uphill march to gain a view of the town. The squashed school bus from the 1979 hurricane is a sight - thank goodness it was empty when the... More

The Botanic Gardens was a short walk from my fabulous hotel (Fort Young) so I decided to take in the beautiful plants at the Garden. I was really surprised by the diversity plants (especially the tree from Africa with what looked like potatoes as the hanging fruit). It was really peaceful in the Gardens and I was even able to...

Beautiful greenery and different types of trees. The gardens had a huge bonsai tree, which is definitely a picture taking stop.
