Despite its name, reminiscent of Grenada’s British Colonial past, this particular Hyde Park is situated on Woolwich Road, in Grenada’s capital city of St. Georges. Hyde Park has been the home of the Roberts family and its descendants for the past six generations. Fay Roberts Miller, who was born at Hyde Park and her husband, John, are the current owners. The property sits just below the Governor General’s residence near the top of a natural ampitheatre which was formed by the crater of an extinct volcano. It overlooks The Lagoon,(including Peter De Savary’s Port Louis Maritime Village and Camper & Nicholson’s Marina) the port and part of the town of St. Georges, with a magnificent view to the South of the island as far as the Point Saline peninsula.
Hyde Park was originally a small estate and as such only had a tiny flower and kitchen garden close to the house. The remainder of the property was planted in fruit and hardwood trees and was pasture land for grazing cattle. In only a few years this has been transformed into one of Grenada'a finest gardens.
