  • A very lovely place offering both amazing garden and lovely views of Fort-de-France and generally the western coastline. You have to climb the ropeways in the trees to get the best views though. If you're afraid of heights then you will definitely enjoy the rich flora available in the garden. It is also very well kept - neat and tidy. You should visit if you're around Fort-De-france.
  • Wonderful garden and good audio guide proposed at the entrance. I suggest visiting the parc in the morning.
  • A great place to have a walk. It is very well maintained. A great place to take a picture of kolibries
  • Beautiful gardens with a good sized walk and plenty to take in and explore. Loved the high rope bridge and the playground for my boy was great too. Lovely little cafe joined onto this place. Highly recommend this place!
  • Nice gardens, and a fun little canopy rope bridge to get some lovely views! Our sat nav took us a bizarre way to get there which was a little stressful but was a nice afternoon out. Worth a visit! Theres also amazing ice cream round the corner called cafe matilda.. Oh my days. Lush!
