Legon Botanical Gardens - A Newly Discovered Treasure in Ghana (by missionary couples)

What do we do when the missionaries leave on Tuesday and we do not receive new missionaries until Thursday?  We explore.  This morning at 6 a.m. we traveled to the University of Ghana Campus and hiked through the Legon Botanical Gardens.

Here is how it is described online: 

The Legon Botanical Gardens covering an area of approximately 123 acres support the scientific research of the Department of Botany. They contain plant species of the tropics and semi-tropics, including a large collection of palms from various tropical areas.

In addition to the sale of plants and wreaths, landscaping and horticultural services, there are facilities in the gardens for picnics by individuals, families and social groups.

Are you looking for somewhere special to take the whole family? Check out Legon Botanical Gardens, in East Legon, Accra Ghana…Perfect for walks, sailing, bird and butterfly watching, ideal for photo shoots, Wedding Reception and more.

Legon Botanical Gardens should be a children's playground, a science museum and a natural laboratory where children will have space to play with their peers, discover themselves, cultivate team work and share. An open natural space where families can party and share among themselves. A place to conference with nature.

Still not convinced?  Take a look at Diane's photo collection of the experience:

Just like at the Bird Sanctuary in Trinidad, we found a tree across a pond that attracts Egrets
