Botanical Gardens

The largest area of green space within the City of Roseau, this 40 acre oasis is home to over 50 types of indigenous plants and imported trees as well as the Sisserou Parrot, the National Bird of Dominica. Notable visits include Queen Elizabeth II in 1966 and 1985, and Hurricane David in 1979. Look for David's "signature" – the twisted remains of a large bus crushed beneath a massive Baobab Tree.

"The Gardens" continue to be the idyllic setting for recreation, parades and celebrations, and its beauty and serenity make it one of the true gems of the Caribbean.
