  • Beautiful gardens. Definitely worth $8 admission price. I really enjoyed the self guided tour. We could explore at our own pace. Also enjoyed learning about St. Croix history as we explored the grounds.
  • Living in St.Croix is like living anywhere else. You work, you run the kids, you shop for groceries, you cook dinner, you try to find time to relax. However... If you take just one day a week to enjoy where you are, you have 52 days of vacation a year in paradise!! One of those days in each season should be given to these beautiful gardens. Local or tourist, this is more than an attraction. It is the preservation of both the plants and the knowledge about those plants that are so integral to making St. Croix the paradise it is.
  • Amazing.. every view is beautiful, every angle well thought out. Incredible flora amidst old ruins. Must see.
  • A beautiful place to immerse yourself in the flora and fauna of St. Croix. Truly a treat seeing what pops out at you. Also a good place for a piece of St. Croix history.
  • Had a wonderful time. Loved learning about so many new plants & vegetation on our island paradise. Thank you Dewey!!!
