Walk here from downtown POS. Stop along the Savannah for a cold coconut water. It's the nicest botanical garden in the Carib, and right next to the zoo. Cold drinks available. Can't walk? St. Anns taxi...it's less than $2. from downtown.

Nice place to retreat to from the hustle and bustle of downtown Port of Spain. It is easy to reach on foot, just to the north of Savannah. A large collection of trees from all over the world, many of them quite unusual. Also a popular spot for locals to picnic.

A wonderful place for both tourists and locals to enjoy pleasant walks, picnics and liming. Many of the trees are labelled but not all. We asked but no written guide is available. Pity. The trees are festooned with lights and lovely when lit up at night.

It is one of the best place for picnics. Due to the amount of trees the place is scenic and very cool.

Nothing beats a stroll in a Botanical Gardens to view exotic trees and beautiful flowers, it also helps that we had a guide to show us them:) Well laid out and easy to get around. Well worth a visit in this busy city of Port of Spain

There aren't many places you can go with your family or significant other and have a quiet outdoorsy vibe - the Botanical Gardens fixes this problem in the city. The large trees provide shade, the open space allows children to use up their boundless energy and if you choose the right day to go, you can have a long restful... More

I think this is a nice place to take a walk, and I sense there is much more to see than just the short loop I took. What was most interesting to me was the orchid house...but it was closed. I asked at the gate on my way out and was told that it closes at 11 am. Too bad... More

As I sit on one of the many rustic benches in this quiet corner of the Botanic Gardens near the ancient graveyard, I feel at peace with nature. I wonder why many more Trinbagonians do not avail themselves of the opportunity to breathe the pure air here, ramble down the trails or climb a hill or two, to check out... More

The Botanical gardens is a lovely place for a stroll and for picnics. Parking was big problem the two times I visited there. More garbage bins are also needed since most of them were overflowing.
