Set on 2.6 landscaped hectares (6 1/2 acres) of highland, this is a botanical garden with the largest collection of orchids in the West Indies, with a diversity that's rivaled by only one or two equivalent organizations in Trinidad. The site was selected for its relatively cool temperatures and abundant rainfall. Although it originated as a place for strolls through tropical wetlands, past an astonishing variety of orchids, it has evolved into one of the most popular places in Barbados for weddings and anniversary parties. We recommend that you devote at least an hour to wandering through this site's labyrinth of paths and glens. Both it and the above-recommended Flower Forest, with which it is associated, are wheelchair accessible.
