This is the safest place in the city to jog/run. It is a nice environment and you don't have to cross any streets once there. It is about 3.75 k around and it is a nice green space in the city. That said, I would never run here after 6:30 pm as it is too dangerous. Homeless people have swore... More

Walked the entire park. Quiet, sunny day. I got to take in the historical buildings along the way and the zoo and botanical park which lie on the outskirts. Nice relaxing area to catch an outdoors picnic.

Great for exercise. A lap around the savannah affords one a decent workout accompanied by some historic sightseeing. The night comes alive with the aroma of quality street food. The savannah is always a 'big shabang' at Carnival time too.

It's not much more than big open space but that being said it is central to just about everything in the city. It is one of the major roundabouts of the city. You'd enjoy some coconut water from a vendor and maybe some sunlight and a nice stroll but nothing much to see there.

It is true, the Savannah is a huge space with great potential and not much else at the moment. However, it is a space where lots of things happen in Trinidad and if you want to go for a walk or a run it is the best place. Have a quick look at the dilapidated Magnificent Seven, enjoy some cool... More

I didnt find the Savannah very interesting, just a big empty space with some trees etc. I would not spend any time there and head to Maracas Bay instead

My boyfriend and I hired a driver for the day and he stopped here to let us walk around and take in the sight. Many locals were there playing soccer. Great views of the hillside. Several vendors around the park selling fruit and snacks. If you just want a mellow afternoon, this is a great place. If you have young... More

Went there late night to a coconut wagon. We all bought coconuts, the vendor cut the end off for us to drink the coconut water. After finishing that he cut them open so we could eat the coconut jelly.....not a fan of the jelly. Nice place to stop and relax.

If you want to understand the history and culture of Trinidad you quite simply, must visit Queen's Park Savannah. Make sure a local takes you to explain the buildings, the history, Carnival and all that goes on there.
