OK as part of Island tour. Not worth visiting alone. Most interesting sight is school bus crushed under tree after past hurricane. Free wifi in Park.

Stopped at Dominica as part of cruise itinerary. As it was a Sunday most shops were closed. We took a self guided walk around town. 10 mins walk from cruise terminal we found the botanical garden. Entry is free and some of the trees and flowers were beautiful colours. There were a few placid canine residents in park but they... More

Nothing was blooming when we were there , the largest attraction was the school bus a tree fell on during Hurricaine David (I believe) and the tree continued to grow through the bus , and the two parrots. Otherwise I would say go sit on a nice beach and save your money ...Nothing to see worth the cost of the... More

We walked to the gardens serenaded by the Sunday service held in the sports ground. It's fairly basic but Jacks Walk up to a great vantage point is worth the effort. There were police officers specifically posted to the location whilst cruise ships were in port. WiFi is available in the middle of the gardens! I also recommend you walk... More

More of a park than botanical gardens, but peaceful and a very pleasant place to visit. The walk up Jack's Trail is fairly strenuous but worthwhile for the view from the top. Make sure you see the bus that was crushed by a baobab tree in a hurricane. The gardens have free wifi as well.

This is a good option if you have a little time to kill in Roseau. The walk up to the top is not too strenuous but is enough to feel worthwhile, and gives a good view.

The gardens were interesting but nothing spectacular. I would never pay to see them. I hiked up to the top of this trail inside there and was rewarded with a fabulous view of the town and shoreline. It was worth the climb. I was exhausted but happy I did it.

These botanical gardens don't have much to see. Not like the ones I have seen in the past. It's just a nice park really. If you only have one day, there's better things to see in Dominica

Great place to walk around and admire Caribbean trees, plants and flowers. Blue hummingbirds were attacking the bottle brush tree and were easy to see. There are local parrots caged for viewing. We had a guide so he explained all of the different plants. Flowering trees are beautiful. Liquid sunshine bout a challenge to our group
