Botanical Gardens, Kingstown

4.3
Built in the late 18th century, Botanical Gardens now stands as one of the oldest botanical gardens in the Western Hemisphere. Originally built to provide medicinal herbs and plants to the military, the garden now provides a clean, natural place for gatherings of locals and tourists alike. Walk the paths yourself, or hire a guide to glean a bit more information about the history of the garden and the plants. You'll find many St. Vincent Parrots within the garden; it's a good place to see one close up.

  • Beautiful gardens. Very well maintained. Take a guide at the entrance as they are very knowledgeable and friendly. Venetian parrots here as well.
  • St . Vincent's pride and joy. Great place to visit. Wonderful scenery
  • Beautiful well maintained grounds. The parrot aviary for the breeding of the critically endangered Amazon is a must.
  • Nice place to take your family. It is the oldest botanical gardens in the western hemisphere. It is also the most visited site locally by tourists and travellers. It also has some of our endangered national bird, the st.vincebt parrot, the amazona guildingi (not sure if I got the spelling right).
