Excellent historic and scenic spot to chill, picnic and relax alone or with loved ones. Children love the wide open spaces to run and play. Some seating and toilet facilities available but you can bring your own, or if you prefer... spread a picnic mat/sheet.

The space is so scenic and refreshing. The landscape is not only beautiful but interesting as a number of rare and exotic trees are found. This garden is ideally located next to the Emperor Valley Zoo and Queens Park Savannah. It truly adds a fresh breath to the city.

The trees are quite well labelled and the lawns are beautifully kept. This is a nice place for a gentle stroll or for a picnic. Don't expect these botanical gardens on the scale of those in other major cities, but it was a pleasant enough experience and somewhere to wander without worrying about traffic.

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

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

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.
