Owner description: The Botanical Gardens are one of the most important and popular sites in St Vincent. They are the oldest botanical gardens in the Western Hemisphere (established in 1765) and are also an important conservation site (particularly for the St Vincent parrot). The Botanical Gardens are in Kingstown, a short journey from the town centre.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

The garden's were very beautiful and well worth a visit. They're easy to find, just a short 10 min walk out of Kingstown past the hospital.

I would definitely recommend paying the extra for the guided tour, it was interesting, and you can take time after to wander about by yourselves.

“Nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

This is nice park like Botanical Garden in central location. Make sure you take a local guide, because with him we had fruits straight from the tree etc. Normally those kind of things are strictly prohibited.

“nice gardens”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

I found the gardens to be more of a park setting with flowers. Not really a dedicated botanical garden. They do have the national parrot there.

“Really interesting”

Great gardens, mostly interesting trees, but if you manage to get Daniel as a guide, he is hilarious and had us in stitches! The diarrhoea tree had us giggling!!!

“Interesting with Guide”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2013

This is a small botanical garden - very well maintained. Not much information on the plants available without a guide. Our guide was informative and entertaining. There is no entrance fee to the garden, but a guide will expect around $20 US per person at the end of the tour (not worth that much). The St. Vincent parrots are worth seeing (for a donation to their upkeep). That was a highlight for our son. We didn't visit the Montreal Garden, so I can't compare.
