like so much in Trinidad they lack follow up . It has a lot of appeal but lacked maintenance. Some flowers would be nice for ambiance too

It was good to see Brian Lara was honoured in such a public way. It was nice to sit in his space in the heart of the city and people watch. Its one of my favourite pastimes.

The area in itself is very interesting and worth the walk, yet, there is a lot of poverty and petty crime in the area, remain vigilant!

If you want to observe the locals, then this is where you should go, named after the famous cricketer Brian Charles Lara. This promenade is in the heart of the city and is very busy at any time of the day or night.

I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the promenade but wasnt sure whether there were public facilities in use. I enjoyed the entertainment provided for a Friday afternoon.

Port of Spain is gritty. And it's exciting. This was a good walk through town where you can get a feel of the place. It leads to Independence Square which is alive with locals rushing here and there. Inviting but edgey.
