Built in the late 18th century, Botanical Gardens now stands as one of the oldest botanical gardens in the Western Hemisphere. 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.

  • This is a great adventure to take while being in St. Vincent. There is so much hidden history here that you wouldn’t know about unless you take a visit. I recommend hiring a tour guide upon your arrival just to enhance the whole experience. Did I mention the ambience is breathtaking?
  • Such a lovely garden. Vast variety of flowers and trees. Very beautiful tourist attraction. Great for taking pictures for celebrating any type of event especially weddings. Definitely would recommend any to visit.
