Explore the natural side of St. Croix presented in maintained trails, beautiful landscapes, and full of bright, colorful flowers. This is a perfect place to visit when you need a break from the exciting vacation and are looking for the relaxing one.

Saint George Village Botanical Gardens is a 16 acre site that houses 1500 species of pants both native and exotic. The plants surround the ruins of a 19th century Danish sugar cane plantation.

St. George Village Botanical Garden will give you a tour of some of the indigenous species of plant life found on the island, as well as educate you on some of the ecological and environmental issues facing St. Croix.

Location

Saint George Village Botanical Gardens is located on the island of St. Croix, 0.5 miles east of Allandale; it's three and a half miles (five and a half kilometers) to the east of Frederiksted.

Nearby Restaurants

Of course, one of the most exciting possibilities while spending a few hours exploring the area is enjoying a dish at a restaurant within traveling distance of the botanical gardens. Crucian Wings is a wonderful restaurant to fill up at before checking out the botanical gardens, and offers convenient access to it. Crucian Wings is a short ways off, but far-off enough that you might want to arrange for taking advantage of a type of transportation to get there. Subway Carlton and Mt. Pellier Domino Club are some more restaurant choices near the botanical gardens. At Mt. Pellier Domino Club you should not end your meal without taking a bite of their specialty, barbecue.

Nearby Attractions

You'll find some other places of interest nearby, including Cruzan Rum Factory, which is a mile and a half away Carlton. Furthermore, you can think about visiting Lawaetz Family Museum, which is another attraction close by.
