Dominica Botanic Gardens, Roseau

3.3
#3 of 8 in Parks in Roseau
Hailed as one of the best botanical gardens in the the Caribbean region, Dominica Botanic Gardens was built in 1890 and featured flora from around the world from the outset. Misfortune befell the gardens during Hurricane David in 1979, when the storm wreaked havoc and pulled down several old trees. Look for the huge African baobab tree, which fell and crushed a school bus during the storm. Flora in the gardens includes exotic plants like the bois kwaib, Dominica's national tree and flower, as well as some wildlife, such as lizards and hummingbirds. Check the calendar before you go to see if any cricket matches, parades, or music festivals will take place during your visit.

    I had a picnic lunch with a few friends here on a Sunday afternoon and it was a beautiful and peaceful experience. Aside from the occasional car driving through the gardens there isn't much traffic.  more »

    It was amazing to see the tree that smashed a bus and the other unique trees and flowers. Check out the bamboo house.  more »

    Beautiful gardens in the hart of the town. Well worth a visit if you're in port.
