I visited in April which I believe is the dry season. It's a nice park to walk around in and they have pavilions for eating and shade. I didn't see too many flowering plants and bushes, but that may have just been the time of year. It doesn't take that long to visit so it's you can add it on... More

Very pretty botanic gardens with lots of tropical plants and trees (as expected). Delightful to walk around for an hour. We saw local school children having lessons under the trees, and lots of locals meandering through. Probably a must see in Port of Spain.

Spending some time here while visiting Trinidad was worth it. Relaxing and enjoyable walks along the gardens is not only fascinating but also interesting. A gardener's bliss!

Love a stroll through the Queen's Park Savannah with my Huawei P9Lite. Always something picturesque to photograph.

Next to the zoo, the gardens are not extensive but are an easy stroll. There's no cost, so its worth taking the time to visit especially if you are starting at the nearby Hilton.

Needs a little 'upgrade' but pleasant. Many plants labeled - interesting. Open from 6-6 Don't get locked in!

If you're visiting the Queen's Park Savannah or the Zoo, this is a perfect spot to end your afternoon or evening. It's great for an evening stroll or picnic with family, friends or even by yourself. It's very safe, there are officials patrolling the gardens all the time. The gardens close around 6pm so take note.

Thank SarahSook
