The Botanical Gardens was one of the destinations on our tour we went on. It was very peaceful and uncrowded. I personally loved it that way and enjoyed the little bamboo house the most. Learnt it was a romantic place for many couples too.

This is located in Roseau, and easy to reach. It is sad that they do not have adequate funds to maintain it, but what is there is very interesting. The bamboo house is fascinating, the trees are delightful and flowers galore. Everyone we met was very at attentive and friendly. It does take a lot walking to see the whole... More

Interesting and beautiful location with a good variety of plant life. Some types of plants are endemic to Dominica. The island is so lush and bursting with life that it feels like you never leave a botanical garden paradise.

The botanic gardens are an oasis on the outskirts of the capital city Roseau. It showcases the national parrot and a remnant of the damage done by hurricane David in 1979. One must visit this place

If you have some time to kill while in the capital city, be sure to check out the botanical gardens. My favorite part is the bus that is crushed by a tree.

If you like plants, trees and gardening, you will love these gardens . Situated on the largest acreage in town, the garden boasts innumerable plant species and trees. We took a guided tour and really enjoyed the knowledge that he gave us about various plants and trees. It was a really beautiful place to visit.

This was mainly trees not flowers. But the trees were interesting because they were native to this island. Also saw a couple of parrots. Hurricane Ivan have devastated some of the trees and one had fallen on a bus. Luckily no one was in the bus. It was a pleasant but not a must see.

These are not typical gardens where they are full of plants and flowers more a few individual pieces that are interesting. There are different kinds of trees which require a guide to explain. This can be done under 30 minutes. Reminds me more of a Sunday family day park to have a picnic.

The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. I took a taxi - by myself - and felt quite safe. The birding was very good with quite a few species easily spotted.
