The SVG Botanical Gardens are one of the most important and popular sites in St Vincent. They are the oldest Botanical Gardens in the Western Hemisphere (established in 1765) and are also an important conservation site (particularly for the St Vincent parrot, Amazona guildingii).
The SVG Botanical Gardens are a place of natural beauty and peace. In order to preserve the gardens, there is no alcohol or smoking in the gardens, and no glass bottles are allowed.
The Botanical Gardens is located about one mile (1.6 km) from Capital Kingstown along the Leeward Highway.
