We tried to visit the botanical gardens in conjunction with a visit to the Ardastra Gardens and Zoo but could not find the entrance or any signs. There were some men raking inside the garden's wall and we asked one where the entrance was but he did not know. I also asked one of the bus drivers and he thought... More

If you want to see some nature and greenery then check out one of the national parks (see my review of Primeval Forest National Park). The botanical gardens are located behind Fort Charlotte and to be honest, need some serious work. It's a two dollar entrance fee. There is not a lot of plant variety and almost no signs on... More

We went knowing the reviews sucked! I love tree's and nature so I figured it wouldn't be that bad. I'm sure if it wasn't winter there may have been flowers blooming but when we arrived not a single person around and a bunch of trees and rocks. We walked from the Cruise Ships and wanted to see something different and... More

As a gardener. And as a gardener in a similar climate with highly Alkaloid limestone soils I hope that the Botanical Gardens reach out to gardens like The Kampong, Fairchild Tropical Gardens, and others in FL to learn more about improving their cultural practices. The garden is badly in need of mulch, soil improvements, and care. Yes some plans need... More

The botanical gardens is located on the same road as the zoo. It's fairly small, so we accidently passed it the first time around. The garden has a few paths to walk around and features a pond & a non-working fountain. The coolest thing in the park is a tree that was knocked down by a hurricane years ago, but... More

Nothing in the park was marked. Locals at the hotel told us it was free, but there was a small group perched by the gate asking for $2. Didn't look legitimate in a variety of ways. Your time is much better spent going over to the zoo.

This happens every year, around 19/20th October. 5 dollars. Entrance fee. 30 countries exhibiting their food and culture. Music from brass bands. What a spectacular event for a small island, well done Bahamas. Best to go early as it gets very busy in the afternoon. Food and drink for every one. The Indian children dancing on the stage was a...

Went to the Botanic Garden yesterday 17 September 2013, looking forward to more 'jungle' than I'd encountered at Ardastra Gardens and Zoo (read: small zoo with some planting). Arrived 2.15pm, but the woman on the entrance didn't want to let me in, 'not enough time'. I wanted to go in, as I would be leaving the Bahamas soon. Then she... More

My first trip to the Bahamas. I fell in love. The tour was excellent price affordable. I would love to live there. It's definitely a must see and I will be back.
