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.

The Dominica Botanic Gardens are small but beautiful and loaded with tropical plants many of our gardens in the United States do not exhibit. The trip is well worth the visit if you have time with all the other things you would like to do....More

We walked up from the Cruise Port, the views are lovely and gardens are pleasant, it is a quite a walk but worth it.
