This garden is not very large, but it is packed with beautiful plants indigenous to the tropics. Unfortunately, the orchids were not in season so we'll have to go back again. There is also an opportunity to see some local fauna. We saw many species of birds, a lizard that ran across a pond (it moved to fast for me... More

January was not the right time to visit this lovely garden. Mostly a woodland walk. Orchid gardens not yet in bloom. Variety of fruit trees. Iguanas roam freely and are great for the kiddies to see. Nice layout and very pleasant. Makes for a pleasant morning walk.

Not many floral displays during December and would love to visit in February during the orchid blooms. However, it was a great place to find out more about the local vegetation, trees and blue iguanas. Even though the temperature was in the 80's, the trails are shady so it was a very pleasant walk. Nice gift store with friendly and... More

Visited the park the 2nd week of January. Although the park has a nice layout and there were some flowers in the area, it would have been a great visit had the plants been in bloom. There are a lot of plant varieties to be seen though. There are 2 sections to the park; the garden area and a nature... More

A nice place to visit for a morning or afternoon. Lots of walking, but there are resting places with shade. Orchids were not blooming because it was so dry, but still lots of flowers and plants to see.

A lovely Botanical Garden with famed blue iguanas in abundance, a great way to spend a few hours in a peaceful setting. Very tranquil, nice gift shop with drinks and snacks. Don't forget to bring your insect repellent!

This Park is a wonderful place to spend several hours wondering around. It is about 40 minutes from George Town by public transportation which is very inexpensive. Admission prices were reasonable and the Park was not very crowded on the day we visited. Very peaceful and relaxing way to spend a morning.

I think this would be prettier at a different time of year, January seems to be not a peak month for the plantings. Still lots to see and interesting facts about plants and trees. Saw a couple iguanas, turtles and birds. A nice walk and worth visiting.

I will note right away that my wife and I visited at the end of December, when nothing was fruiting or in bloom. We missed the sites of the different varieties of orchids in their orchid boardwalk tour and did not see the dozen, or so, different fruits in their fruit tree exhibit. But we still enjoyed the walk. They... More

It is an enjoyable break from the beach and sun, but if you visit botanical gardens around the globe you could be disappointed. The colour garden is by far the best portion of the garden otherwise a bit drab in winter. It is not a must see attraction.
