Grenada Homes and Garden Tour

Duration: Half Day

Grenada homes and garden tour

The beautiful Caribbean island of Grenada is blessed with an incredible array of tropical flora, much of which flourishes due to the extraordinarily fertile volcanic soil. The Grenadians use this to their advantage by creating a superb range of beautiful public and private gardens which can be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. This tour will take you to Sunnyside Gardens and Hyde Park, two private gardens that have been lovingly cared for by their owners over the years. Bursting with vibrant colours and sweet, tropical fragrances, these hidden gems are a delight to explore.

Starting at Sunnyside Gardens, situated just outside the town of St. George’s in the area of St. Paul's, this tour will enable you to see why Grenada has deservedly won seven Gold Awards at the Chelsea Flower Show over the last 12 years, in addition to several Silver Gilt awards. Due to its beauty and diversity, Sunnyside was featured in Channel 4's TV series ‘Gardens of the Caribbean', and enthusiasts have come here from all over the world to admire it. The garden boasts a profusion of trees, shrubs, aquatic plants, orchids, hibiscus and many other exotic blooms, and the variety of colours, shapes, sizes and textures is incredible. Sunnyside’s success ultimately reflects the devoted care and attention of its owner, Jean Renwick, who continually adds features such as the picturesque Koi Carp pond to enhance the garden’s natural beauty. There is a story behind every different plant, tree and flower, which Jean will personally reveal during the tour.

Our next stop is Hyde Park, which has been home to the Roberts family and its descendants for the past six generations. The current owners are Fay Roberts Miller, who was born here, and her husband John. Although this garden is smaller than Sunnyside, it is full of colour, charm and character, and is considered one of Grenada’s finest gardens. You will find several plant species here that can rarely be seen outside botanical gardens, such as the Portlandia Grandiflora, but some of the highlights include an abundance of palms, cycads, heliconias, bougainvillea and a rich diversity of other tropical plants in many different colours. Fay is particular passionate about orchids and many different varieties can be seen here. If this wasn’t enough, Hyde Park’s setting is superb, boasting magnificent views over the lagoon in Carenage to Grand Anse Beach, part of St George’s town and Point Salines peninsula in the south of the island.

After the walk you will be offered a refreshing glass of fruit juice, which has been made from one of the trees growing on the estate. As with Sunnyside, you will escorted around the garden by the owners, which makes the experience all the more richer. Not to be missed during your holiday in Grenada, this tour is a wonderful introduction to the island’s horticultural treasures.
