I have been to many botanicals and think this is special. I think I particularly liked it as there were not hoards of people and you could venture around on your own. Lots of very interesting plants among old sugar cane ruins. But it wasn't just the plants it was the whole environment.

Located mid island off Centerline Road, the St. George Village Botanical Gardens offers a haven of peace and tranquility, and a glimpse into the days when sugar plantations dominated the island of St. Croix. Make sure you make a stop in the gift shop. There you'll find reasonable priced postcards, books and artifacts and artwork. The staff who work in... More

We took the self-guided walking tour-great plants, old building ruins, little museum, orchid collection. Worth the time and money. Talked to a great volunteer, Jane, I believe was her name.

We love flowers / gardens & always enjoy going to botanical gardens at different locations when we are on vacation. We were happy to see St. Croix had this botanical garden. We first entered a very nice gift shop that has lots of very cool things. And their prices are fantastic. Left with a lot of treasures. Very reasonably priced... More

We toured the garden with Mr. Sweeney on his bus tour. He was very knowledgeable on the local plants as well as the sugar plantation ruins. I learned a lot about the trees and flowers.

If you like flowers then this should be a place on your list if you visit St. Croix. On my 2nd visit to this island is when I had a chance to visit and it is very serene, quiet, and absolutely beautiful!

Being a big fan of botanical gardens, I was looking forward to visiting St. George Village Botanical Garden. The woman in the gift store was extremely friendly. However, they have some items on display without having any available to sell. I was interested in purchasing a local balm. Was able to sample it and guess what, they not longer have... More

We were worried that the walk would be too hot as we didn't arrive to the gardens until 11AM. Not only were the gardens beautiful, but there was plenty of shade of enjoy the stroll. There is a rich history surrounding the sugar mill and guest houses. It's worth the light reading to learn a little bit of Caribbean history.... More

Stopped by the garden because it seems like people loved their visit. well, I went by myself. This is a huge playground for me. learning about the trees, flowers, plants, and the local history. I did the guided tour and thoroughly enjoyed my visit at the St. George Village Botanical Garden.
