Green Island Gardens


Park Road,



There is no need for pre-booking, and social distancing is not a problem as we have 20 acres of gardens. We ask all our visitors to follow COVID 19 precautions, following the one way system for Entrance & Exit.

20 acres of professionally designed gardens by Fiona Edmond in woodland decimated by the 1987 hurricane. Includes terrace gardens, Japanese garden, water garden, seaside garden, gravel gardens, and extensive woodland gardens hosting a wealth of unusual plants often of borderline hardiness that thrive in the unique microclimate. A Plantsman’s paradise that looks good all year round.
