Overview

Set in a lush valley, this is one of the very last natural areas on the island unmolested by developers or farmers. Peace and fresh air reign in the 30-hectare oasis of colourful native tropical flora, adorned by a waterfall and nursed by a natural stream. Begun in 1884, the garden is dedicated to its first superintendent Charles Curtis, who initiated the collection of local botanical specimens that have earned important placing in the world's herbariums. Its proximity to Georgetown makes it a popular spot for joggers, hill climbers and picnickers, as well as monkey watchers and teasers.
