Garden of the Groves
Discover the natural beauty and the wildlife of the Bahamas at the Garden of the Groves, an idyllic botanical garden filled with lush plant life, native animal life, and plenty of photo opportunities.
The 12-acre park was dedicated to Mr. and Mrs. Wallace Groves, the founders of Freeport, in 1973, and since that time, it has been transformed into the eden of the Bahamas: with over ten thousands plants and hundreds of birds and other animals, the Garden is the perfect place to take a stroll.
In addition to the exotic macaws, alligators, and iguanas that live on the grounds, there is a wonderful petting zoo that allows children to interact with the pot-bellied pigs and pygmy goats of the Garden. There is also a wonderful playground for the younger visitors.
Located about a half an hour's drive out of central Freeport, the easiest way to access the Gardens if you are without car is by booking a tour out of Freeport through the bureau of tourism or your hotel.
The main path in the Gardens are wheelchair and stroller accessible, and there are plenty of benches along the path to take in the atmosphere. Be aware that the Garden does not rent out strollers or wheelchairs.
There is a cafe on site, and is open daily during park hours. There are many delicious options to choose from, and if you are visiting during the right season, fruits from the Garden are available off the menu.
