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.

Not as large as some places. Better to go to the Asa Wright Nature Center and plan to arrive early, leave around 5:00 PM.

Situated in the heart of Scarborough the capital of Tobago these gardens are kept clean and tidy every day by the park keepers and you wouldn't even know they were there they are so quiet . Chickens running wild around the gardens adds to the ambience of the place . Gorgeous tropical trees flowers and lily ponds throughout the park... More

The botanical garden is right on the Queen's Savannah, and is a great place to relax and walk around. Families have picnics here and the overall atmosphere is tranquil.
