What You Can Expect

Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Centre Admission Ticket

Freddy the peacock

Make your way to the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center, located just a few minutes' drive from downtown Nassau. Your admission ticket is good for opening hours, between 9am and 5pm daily. The center was created by Jamaican horticulturist Hedley Edwards, who later brought the famous Caribbean flamingos from the southern Bahamas as a contrast to the abundant greenery.

Explore the 4 acres (1.6 hectares) of verdant plant life and tropical gardens at your own pace. Take a break on a limestone bench hidden in a secluded corner, cross a footbridge as a kingfisher wades below and snap photos of the informal gardens. Watch the Bahamian ducks and swans paddle around the pond as freshwater turtles sun themselves on the rocks. While walking the Gardens, friendly and informed staff will answer questions while you explore. 

Light refreshments are available at the canteen, and there is a gift shop featuring garden- and nature-themed souvenirs. 

Your ticket includes admission to the 'Flamingo Experience', occurring at 10:30am, 2pm and 4pm daily and featuring the Bahamas' National Bird, the Caribbean Flamingo.

We had a great time at the Ardasta Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre in Nassau, Bahamas! Our whole family was together and we were able to get a family photo with some of the flamingos walking around us! It was a great time! Both little and 'big' kids enjoyed themselves! Thank you!

Lovely seeing the wide variety of birds and other animals. The Flamingo March was good as was the bird feeding.


4 star rating: Recommended April 2016

We only went to the zoo. It was nice. Small and only takes about 1 1/2 hr.
It was a nice oasis that was unexpected.

The animals at this zoo did not seem to be well cared for.
