    This is a tiny Botanical Garden. It's nice enough, but I've been to several others that are much more impressive. Actually, I expected something more special for being in such a lush location.  more »

    Small but beautiful botanical gardens with some unusual plants. Shady spots, colourful sections and fruit trees. Well worth the $3 entrance fee. Link with a visit to the Sugarworks museum or the Priso...  more »

    I found this beautiful garden as a great stop in a self-guided walking tour around Road Town from the Cruise Pier. The garden is small but very well maintained and just beautiful and peaceful.

    Lushly Botanical Garden. I enjoyed here. I took a walk through this round 4-acre showcase of lush plant life. There are sections devoted to prickly cacti and succulents, hothouses for ferns and orchids, gardens of medicinal herbs, and plants and trees. Love the gardens. It worth a visit indeed. ****
