Greenery in the tropics

The gardens are a cool and peaceful place in a bustling fairly industrial city. Very nice for a stroll. Have some coconut water when walking back

I will admit to not being overly interested in gardens. However, there isn't much information on the plants/trees and why they were in the gardens. It was a very nice afternoon walk though.

There are many mature trees in this garden, all are well documented with Latin names, common names and where they're typically found. The garden is spread over a large property covered with a grassy groundcover, but there aren't a great many shrubs. Perhaps it was just the time of year.

If you love plants, this is the ideal place, the plants have their scientific, and well known names. A lovely stroll along the paths and take in the scenery. Would not believe it is close to the centre of Port of Spain.

It's a fine place to go if you have nothing to do and you maybe want to have a picnic. It doesn't have much of anything in the way of a garden. It's more just a large area with trees and benches.

I must say a nice place to get in touch with nature and even have picnics. Beautiful trees and flowers, surroundings are very clean and well maintained. Great for a family getaway and also to take pictures.

We thought this place was beautiful. And free admission was great. The different trees are really well established and nice to see. It started to pour while we were here and we hid under the garcinia tree.
