Garden Of The Groves, Freeport Reviews - Write a Review
The Garden of the Grove is definitely worth a visit on your trip. A variety of paths meander through the gardens and include a variety of trees and flowers, sculptures, grottoes, a chapel, and waterfalls. There are a number of waterfowl to see too. If you have kids there is a picnic area and playground to enjoy. We also got some great local tips from the owner. We visited in the off season and nothing was in bloom, but we still enjoyed our visit. I imagine the gardens must be spectacular in the Spring.
Food was excellent! Portion size was amazing. Ambiance great. Helpful friendly staff. 11/10. Will come again
Very quiet soothing place. Amazing to have a quite lunch at. Playground for kids to play on. Definitely the place to go if your a bird watcher.
While I really enjoyed walking around the gardens, the price is too much for what the gardens are which is why I am giving 3 stars. However, we received a discount because we biked from the resort instead of driving, so that may be a option for some people. The pathways at the garden were fun and we saw a bunch of different wildlife, sadly because we did not go during the tourist season the gift shops were not open. If you get a chance check out the aquaponics set up they have, Wayne will give you a nice tour and tell you all about it. P.S. try not to step on any snails :(
Lovely grounds for walks. Peaceful and provides good info on native flora
