J.R. O'Neal Botanic Gardens, Road Town

3.3
#12 of 17 in Parks in Tortola
Stroll in the shade of the serene J.R. O'Neal Botanic Gardens and observe the lush tropical plants and exotic animals that live here. Terrapins reside in pools and lizards scurry though the plants, while many colorful fruits hang overhead. Located just a short walk from the port, and not exceedingly large, you’ll manage to see a diverse amount of flora and fauna without taking up the whole day. Be sure to have a peek in the gift shop before you leave. Plan to visit J.R.

  • Been to several Botanic gardens and this one is one of the better ones. Easy to find your way around with a wide variety of plants and trees. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Worth the small fee.  more »
  • 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 »

  • Garden is nice but it needs more caring. Found many areas that looked a bit neglected with some dry plants here and there. Fountains were also off and there no guides to talk about the garden itself. I guess it should have been beautiful once and I know some improvements can be done if some one cares enough.
  • The hurricane did a number on this place.
  • 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. ****
  • 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.
  • It's a gas station. It sells gas
