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

A wonderful collection of palms (although one or two unaccountably absent) an a good selection of other indigenous and exotic plants. Well done Trinidad.

Just returned from here....not worth paying money to see. The trees and plants were well labeled. You don't need a guide for this. You're given a brochure / map. My husband and I went about 3-4 pm on aThur. And it was pretty much deserted. The bathrooms were very neat and tidy.

Likes: What is there not to like about nature?! If you just came from the Zoo it's a great place to relax after. But if you're just going to relax...even better. Dislikes: The washroom facilities are too far A source of running water for the public is limited to a couple areas There aren't enough huts for large groups

The day I was there a large Pomerac tree was full of ripe fruit. The birds were very busy and made quite a spectacle. I nice pleasant walk.

This is a nice but very limited garden. Its positive is that it is lacated right next to the zoo (they use the same parking area). It has picnic facilities which makes it a lovely place for lunch after a zoo visit. We saw many locals having family picnics which was pleasant to see

Really nice well-stocked former colonial park area - lots of interesting specimens and shady places to keep cool. Really rather a beautiful atmosphere...

Trinis are friendly. Tropqist Hotel is excellent as they accommodated me without a reservation and provided a great room, prices and compassion on mom's passing. This is my 2nd visit to Tropquist and 3rd to The Gingerbread House. Gingerbread House is great for single women and adults. Rosie and her family including her help is the best. You are safe... More
