Its quite and perfect for a romantic walk at lunch time, with the wind blowing and the birds singing and the cool shade under a tree. What more can you asked for. Its a great place to bring the family to just relax and have fun.

After a visit to the zoo the botanical gardens offered us serene natural grounds for a picnic. The trees are sourced from near and far as far as Thailand. A must see.

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.

The gardens....... a great place to host a family reunion especially when there are kids. Great picnic area some of which tables are available. Lots of floor space for games and other activities. Huge trees that provides shade during the sunny days. Just beautiful.

Here you can learn something while you enjoy the scenic beauty. Every tree is tagged with information like the local name and the scientific name, and in some cases the age of the tree. On any given day you can find scores of people visiting this location. You may also be fortunate to be entertained by some activity on the... More
