Lazaretto Gardens

Not much more than a side attraction, these beautiful gardens are nice for a quick break from the beaches, restaurants, and shopping to just walk around and relax.

Guests who visit Lazaretto Gardens will see plenty of native and non-native plants, all set along a path. While it is no hiking trail, the gardens do give a taste of a nature and a chance to get an idea of what kind of plants were growing before Barbados was developed.


Positioned on the western outskirts of Wanstead, Lazaretto Gardens happily welcomes local residents and visitors lodging in this town or an adjacent area. Regardless of whether or not you are staying in this location, you should consider dropping by for some fun in the sun. If you're wondering, Bridgetown is to the south-southeast.

Nearby Restaurants

There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in the area near the botanical gardens. The most nearby restaurant to Lazaretto Gardens is New York Pizza, which serves Italian meals.
