Walk of Royal Palms

J.R. O'Neal Botanic Garden

Gardeners, botanists, florists and those who just enjoy a stroll in the park, will certainly appreciate the J.R. O'Neal Boatanic Garden in Road Town, Tortola.

Entrance to the garden is via the lovely "walk of Royal Palms" leading to a charming little fountain with several pathways veering of in different directions. You can visit the birds, the turtle pond or the miniature rain forest!

I like to go and walk around just to see what might be in bloom ... when I have a chance to get there. I am particularly interested in orchids of all kinds and they have a nice collection.

For those planning to get married while visiting Tortola, there is a lovely yard, large enough to set up tents and chairs for several hundred guests. If an itimate wedding is more what you had in mind, the fountain is a beautiful spot at which to exchange your vows with just a few friends and family present!

Regardless of your preferences, if you call Heather Anderson at BVI Wedding Planners she will be more than happy to make all the arrangements for you. As your personal weddling coordinator, Heather will do as little or as much as you'd like.

A small entry fee is collected at the gate to help towards the cost of grounds maintenance and donations of any size are gratefully received!

The flowers, trees and shrubs are as diverse as any which can be found anywhere in the islands. There's something for everyone!

I am not a catus fan, but I must admit that the gardeners at the Botanic Garden have done a great job in displaying the variety available in the BVI. I just love the Banyon tree above! It has to be one of the more interesting trees in the world!

My favourite parts of the garden are the many and varied types of palms as well as the turtle pond rimmed with water lilies and the little rain forest waterfall.
