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

If you want an antidote to the noise and bustle of Port of Spain, this is the perfect place for a quiet stroll, its well looked after and has some enormous trees. Its an easy walk from the centre.

For something that is free, it is great to walk around in the sun, as you can shade yourself under the trees. Also get a good look of the presidential palace being renovated next door

On the same day you go for a walk around Queen's Park Savannah you can also go to the Botanical Gardens. The gardens are lovely and well maintained. The trees are beautiful. There are number of quite mature trees that give you a sense of the passage of time.

Ideal location for an early morning walk or run. The birds are out with a welcome as well. Afternoons are perfect for picnics with small children as the grassy areas are well maintained and accessible - would make memorable pictures of them at play!! For lovers of flora and fauna - the visit is worth it.
