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 animals, 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 10,000 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 playground and a petting zoo that allows children to interact with pot-bellied pigs and pygmy goats.
The gardens are located about a half hour's drive from central Freeport. The site's main paths are wheelchair- and stroller-accessible, with plenty of benches along the way. A cafe is onsite, with seasonal fruit from the garden on the menu.
