Royal Botanic Gardens:
I can remember when last I visited this beautiful landscaped area.
Located north of the Queen’s Park Savannah and next the Emperor Valley Zoo, Lies one of the oldest Botanic Gardens in the World.
Established in 1818 with the landscape site now occupying 61.8 acres, it is home to some 700 trees.
Some indigenous to Trinidad and Tobago whilst others are collected from different continents of the world.
Home to the burial plots of former Governors of Trinidad dating back to 1819.
Opened to the public everyday from 6am to 6pm.
The gardens seem to be a popular spot from photo-shoots and family outings.
With benches along the path and sheltered bandstands for group limes, it’s a great spot for just letting go and having a day with friends and family.
Landscape well kept, trees groomed, sights of beautiful scenery.
Allocated for picnicking, with bins for disposal of garbage all over.
Making it a great spot to have that romantic time away with the significant other.
It the perfect place for taking the kids, after being to the Emperor valley zoo.
A good spot to finish off the evening, enjoying the breeze in the shade created by the huge trees.
