Originally built to provide medicinal herbs and plants to the military, the garden now provides a clean, natural place for gatherings of locals and tourists alike.

  • Pleasant and well laid-out botanical garden teeming with both domestic and non-native flora. The signage isn't tremendously comprehensive so relying on one of the guides is highly recommended. Well worth a visit.
  • Make sure to take a guide, they don't cost much. The park is about 20 acres of some of the most beautiful, unusual plants and trees. They apparently have a lot of weddings here and for good reason, as the setting is perfect. The St. Vincent parrots are interesting, though I wish that they were still in the big ornamental cage in the front.
