The gardens are one of the most visited places in Saint Vincent. If you are there don't miss this place. Many Indigenous and exotic tropical plants and trees can be found in this 20 acre garden. While you are there you may see a wedding.

Great area for a walk and picnic on a beautiful day. Parrots are in cages so they are easy to see. Guides for $4 are helpful.
