The Botanical & Montreal Gardens
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
These two Gardens are indicative of St. Vincent’s natural floral beauty. The Botanical Gardens, located at Old Monstrose (Kingstown), is reputedly the oldest botanical garden to be found in the Western Hemisphere – dating back to 1762. It still houses a healthy descendant of one of Captain Bligh’s original breadfruit trees brought over in 1793!
The much smaller (but more diverse and picturesque) 7.5-acre Montreal Gardens can be found in St. Vincent’s magnificent Mesopotamia Valley (Mespo) at an altitude of 1,500 feet. Nestled under the rugged Grand Bonhomme Mountain, the garden immerses visitors into the natural tropical beauty that is signature of St. Vincent’s interior. Anthuriums, bougainvillea, frangipani and tapestries of other tropical flora abound, together with a bubbling stream and charming grounds. Montreal Gardens also features well-organized walkways, paths and panoramic horizon views of the verdant mountains and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Most visitors will see at least one blossom or species at Montreal Gardens that they have never seen before in their lives.Read more
