J. R. O'Neal Botanic Gardens

The J. R. O'Neal Botanic Gardens located on Main St. is located several blocks inland, away from the waterfront, built on the grounds of the old Government Agricultural Station. Only 4 acres, this often overlooked site is one of the prettiest spots on Tortola.

The botanical display features colorful tropical flowers and herbs, a palm garden, fern house, bamboo and grass exhibits, tropical bird house as well as a pond and waterfall, all displaying an array of indigenous and exotic tropical plants.

The self-guided walks will take you past a pond and small waterfall, small Fern House, Orchid House and herb and medicinal gardens.

Open weekdays and Saturday during sunlight hours; Sunday, from noon to 5. Donations accepted.
