Early morning walk.

A good place to come in the cool of the early morning. Mainly trees and a small graveyard from colonial times.

Maybe I was expecting the wrong thing, but when I heard Botanical garden I was visioning a lush, tropical, colorful garden. The good news is that this "park" is free. I use the word park because that is what this feels more like - a park. There isn't a lot of color here other than green and brown. A few... More

Beautiful and diverse gardens, excellently maintained, and easily accessible, located across from the Savannah and near the Hilton Hotel.

We were politely and stealthily accompanied by the guide. Learnt so much about all the trees and shrubs. A hour or thereabouts so the sun quite bearable. BUT virtually everything had a medicinal use. Worth the visit?

I think every Trinidadian has visited the Botanical Gardens at least once in their lifetime, and if they have not, they should. I'm biased about this site because 1. I love plants, animals and all things natural, and 2. I have only fond childhood memories here. It's an excellent place for a picnic, study group, date...anything that requires enough quiet... More

Away from the noise. Gardens could be better but worth a visit. Go during the morning hours to avoid the heat.

Loved walking though these gardens as a child & it was just as wonderful as an adult who had been away a long, long, long time. Whether you are a tourist or a local these gardens are worth a visit!!!

I would definitely not pay for this entry and happy the government have this park open for free. The landscaping is kept well for most part and there is a cemetery smack in the middle of the park. There were a lot of people jogging and exercising. I see this as a nice stroll in the park with nothing much... More
