  • 2. Garden of The Groves
    The Garden of the Groves is a twelve-acre park dedicated in 1973 to Mr. Wallace Groves and his wife Georgette.  Mr. Groves was the founder of the city of Freeport
    The name “Groves” refers to Mr. Groves, in whose honor the Garden was dedicated. There are no citrus or olive groves.
    The Garden is noted for the distinctive Red Eared Slider Turtle.
    Interpretive signs highlight this lush tropical landscape with trees and flowers from the Bahamas and around the world
    The Garden includes tropical fruit trees throughout the park including tamarinds, coconuts, bananas, guavas, sapodillas, mangos, mammee, java plums, cherries, pineapples and avocados. 
  • 3. Recent History
    The Garden of the Groves was devastated following three significant hurricanes in 2004
    It was abandoned for around three years
    Due to the efforts of Erika Gates and Michelle Hanson who formed the Bahamas Parks and Recreation and the Grand Bahamas Port Authority, the Garden was restored and re-opened in 2008
    The Garden is once again a popular tourist attraction and the scene of many weddings.
  • 4. During our honeymoon we had
    The good fortune to visit the Garden
    Of the Groves .The garden is
    a beautiful spot that we believe is
    much less known than it should be.
    The opportunity to spend some time
    in this lovely idyllic place represents
    a wonderful experience that we would like
    to share by virtue of some photos
    that I took. Victor and Sandy Camlek, 2009
