Seemed to be closed, and been so for a while. We found a small house/cafe that seemed to have been closed for a long time.

The Bay Gardens no longer exist in any managed form. Yes, you can see the remnants of what must have once been a beautiful place, but now it is just an overgrown wilderness.

The owner, our guide, couldn't have been more helpful, showing us around the extensive gardens, which must have been glorious in better days - before hurricane Ivan. At the time we went,the gardens were pretty run down, but we really enjoyed our visit, and our host was extremely knowledgable about all the flora and fauna, plus you can buy herbs and spices there.

I worked with the owner to arrange a bouquet for our wedding day in Grenada,,, orchid bouquet,,, they were delivered right to the resort. I was happy with it, only arranging things over email and phone once we arrived in Grenada.

Albert St. Bernard is the owner and wonderful guide of this jungle paradise.
One can phone beforehand to make sure a guide is there to meet you.
A zone 4 bus (ask which one) from St. George's bus station costing 2.50ecd (60p. UK) will drop you at St. Paul's Police Station. A short walk downhill will take you to the garden which costs only 10ecd pp.
Compared to the other well manicured, more expensive, cruise ship focussed gardens, this is a joy for the true gardener.
There are Coy carp in a pond and "pregnant palms" amid lots of indigenous specimens. As it is mainly green, the sudden splash of colour is surprising.
Albert, who is on the Chelsea Flower Show exhibit (he will be there this year), explains everything so clearly.
