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.

  • I've lived in St. Vincent for years, and never really got to take a tour of the gardens. It is absolutely worth it. There are tons of plants I never even knew existed there, and it's breathtaking to walk around and explore. Get a chance to see the national bird while you're there!
