This remarkable 'lost' garden was the private domain of the wealthy Vandeleur family – merchants and landowners who engaged in harsh evictions and forced emigration of local people in the 19th century (a current resident said of the Vandeleur: 'That lot fled at liberation'). The gardens lie within a large walled forest just east of the centre and feature colourful tropical and rare plants. Woodland trails wind around the area, and there's a cafe.
