The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1994. Since its opening, the park’s central woodland trail has been joined by a lake and wetlands, tropical flower gardens and an iguana habitat.
The Heritage Garden is pretty enough to live in, with a pink traditional cottage, fruit trees and sand garden.
The park’s highlight remains the woodland trail, a 20 minute stroll from wetlands to cactus and mahogany woodlands. Orchids and butterflies can also be spotted in the park.
The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park is towards the eastern end of the island, near the Marshland Natural Habitat. It’s a 40 minute taxi ride from George Town.
