We visit almost every time on St. Croix. The best time for viewing the flowers is after hurricane season and before thing start to dry out in late spring. The flowering plants are spectacular, the grounds immaculate and conducive to just relaxing and enjoying nature. The self guided "tour" (you follow a pamphlet) is interesting no matter the level of... More

Our afternoon at the botanical garden was a highlight of our stay in St. Croix. Admission is $8 and worth every penny. The garden is surprisingly nice and extensive, with very interesting collections interspersed among ruins of the old sugar plantation. My wife and and I and our two adult sons (ages 21 and 19) all loved the visit.

The Botanical Gardens are a wonderful diversion--an easy walk through several different spaces. This is one of our favorite places on St. Croix; so much that we took out memberships during our month this year. Last night, we attended a special event--a guided walk by moonlight, with the botanist for the gardens. He was extraordinary--incredibly knowledgeable about the gardens and... More

Visited as part of sweenys island tour and it was a great stop. The grounds are beautiful and the combination of plantation history and botanical info made this a great activity. I was very surprised by the diversity of plants and trees. Having a guided tour by Sweeny was very helpful, pointing out different plants and relating them to the... More

The gardens are beautiful and we are so glad that we decided to go. We went early in the day around 9:30am and that left plenty of time for the beach and pool later. There are numerous shady areas so you aren't walking around in the full sun the entire time. We have visited many botanic gardens around the world... More

Self guided tour was a nice stroll. There is an admission charge. Something to do on the west side of the island.

I didn't think I would be really big on a botanical garden but I'll tell you what this was an outstanding experience. I would have to rated as the best thing I have done on the island other than lay on the beach. The grounds were beautiful it was peaceful, you could go around at your own pace and there... More

The St. George Village Botanical Garden in St. Croix was a double treat with the variety of beautiful plants as well as ruins of a sugar plantation. Special gardens such as the medicinal herb garden and the spice garden give a picture into the use of native plants. The additional display areas about the poor treatment of the slave laborers...

The Botanical Garden was exactly what I hoped for. We enjoyed seeing the historical sugar mill ruins; walking through the rain forest; and looking at all the exotic plants. We learned what plant produced noni juice - we goofed around with vines and odd metal objects sticking out of the ground. We took lots of pictures of beautiful plantings. Well... More
