  • The Park is soon visited, sorely lacking maintenance and the price of the tour ($15) is overrated compared to what you see in the Park. That's too bad

  • A nice place to spend the day, it's a beautiful garden with birds 🐦 🐦 lakes, Ponds and other animals, a nice cafe' called, Garden cafe'bar and grill, and the food is good, cold Bahamian beers 🍺 🍺 also beers from around the world. You also can get souvenirs. When in Freeport Grand Bahama you have to visit there.
  • The price to enter was quite a little high for what the place has to offer. I was expecting to see great waterfalls, but instead they were "not out of this word". There is a restaurant/cafe inside and a small chapel.
  • I came to the Bahamas for my birthday and we stopped at the garden of the groves and to be honest with you it was one of the highlights of my trip. This is such a beautiful place, the people who work here are so nice it's surreal. The food was very tasty and the drinks were just about right. Nice music, very good environment. If you ever go to the Bahamas you must come here and enjoy a day with nature while enjoying good music, great drinks and delicious food.
  • Nice garden but don't go when it just rained or spray yourself down. The mosquitos are no joke!
  • An absolutely beautiful gardens, a great place to learn about local wildlife or just somewhere to go to get away from it all.
