A Checklist of 3 Parks in Nassau
There’s no better place to experience the beauty of Mother Nature than one of the national parks near our Paradise Island resort. Not only can you enjoy memorable activities, but you’ll also be able to learn about the area’s flora and fauna.
- Bonefish Pond National Park
Established in 2002, the Bonefish Pond National Park is what remains of the tidal mangrove ecosystem found on Southern New Providence. The 1,235 acres protect coastal wetlands, home to a wide range of birds and serve as a nursery for many marine species. The park, filled with trails and boardwalks, is open Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Primeval Forest National Park
Find yourself surrounded by old-growth woodland when you visit Primeval Forest National Park. Found on the southwest portion of the island, you can easily reach this park by car. The steps, bridges, and boardwalks inside the park take you to some of the most incredible sights. Keep your eyes open for the dramatic sinkholes found throughout the park.
- The Retreat Garden
Amongst the hustle and bustle of Nassau, The Retreat Garden is the perfect tranquil oasis. The 11-acre park is the perfect spot for those looking to discover gardens of rare tropical plants and palms. Once a private home, this became the first national park in New Providence in 1985. See if you can spot one of the migratory and resident birds that frequent the garden as you walk along the trails and boardwalk.
