The 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). The Botanical Gardens are a short journey from the town centre of Kingstown. The Botanical Gardens brochure can be seen here (PDF).
