4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2014 NEW

Very knowledgable tour guide who attached himself to me at the onset, clearly knew his stuff, but at the end asked for $40 USD (for 1.5hrs) thats $240TT I paid him $20 USD but felt somewhat resentful at the amount he asked for.... Apparently the hourly rate for staff in the service sector is approx $25-40TT/hour

These gardens are in quite good condition and are worth the effort to view after you've seen the "magnificent seven" buildings facing Queen's Park Savannah. A good place for a picnic and they probably get quite busy on weekends.

There are many different types of plants and birds especially that Trinidad has to offer. The northern end of the Gardens sport a dry river bed which kids love to "hike" in. Beautiful for an afternoon picnic, a lovely stroll with the family is just in order. I recommend this spot for quality family time. I took a photo shoot... More

This still is a great outdoor place for relaxation for me. As a youngster and living close by is was easy access to be in the coolness of the gardens. Many types of trees were planted there years ago and they are identifiable by the inscriptions labelled, so the Nature lovers (Botanists) could enjoy. Whether you visit in the morning... More

Real experience of a variety of trees and plant life. A local guide is available in the park. Go either early morning or late afternoon. It is just around the corner from the national museum, so you could do both in a afternoon.
