The Nassau Botanical Garden was established on July, 10, 1973 on 18 acres and features over 600 species of shrubs and trees.
The site was originally a rock quarry that supplied stones for roadways and the building of fort Charlotte but is now a quiet garden with trails, terraces, and grotto.
The gardens were damaged a few years back by a hurricane and is now in need of repair. One could tell it was a Grand place in the past. Although the gardens were closed to the public, two workers allowed me full access to the property. What luck!

There were many varieties of Palm trees that I have never seen before.
