Queen's Park Savannah, Port of Spain

#Nature / Park, #Must See
When in Port of Spain, head to Queen's Park Savannah for some rest or recreation. The vast 110 hectares (260 acres) originally served as a sugar estate; later purchased as public land, it became a park by the mid 19th century. You may barely notice, but around it circles the world's largest traffic roundabout. The wide swath of low grass sits in the city's most affluent neighborhood, surrounded by notable buildings. Have a picnic, people-watch, or join the crowd of locals who gather there to stroll, jog, hang out with family, or snack on some street food.

  • Turn on very interesting to do a great walk in the morning or give that little run in hot and windy morning in Port of Spain, with around two kilometres to your surrounding is great to start the day well.

  • Is nice walk by Savanna as a local, drink coconut water or only feel the breeze under its trees chatting with a friend.  more »
  • These seven Victorian homes around the park were very neat to see. They are very grand and some of them have been restored nicely.  more »

  • I attended the Army Fete. This open air event was expected to have 15k in attendance being the last of the "people's fetes". The entrances were large if far apart and patrons moved through security quickly. The "special reserve " section had its own bar, food stations and Andy loos which remained stocked and clean. The grounds were surprisingly dry despite earlier rains. Billed as the "safest fete in carnival " it did not disappoint. People and property were secure without an overwhelming police/security presence. Officers to aid direct traffic at the end would have been welcomed. The Savannah as a venue held up to the many, many performers and large but manageable crowd.
  • It's a big open fields that is open to all. During Easter there is the annual kite competition. The steel bands play during Carnival. The Botanical Gardens are located here and the Emperor Valley Zoo is near in proximity. Many building surround the Savannah. Queen's Royal College is situated near as well.
  • Pleasant vendors. Tasty food. Wide variety of menus to satisfy anyone, from vegetarian cuisine to souse. Ample parking available as well.
  • Nice place to relax with friends, have a bite or take a jog among other things. But do not go "into" the savannah after dark it's not very safe.
  • Fantastic flora and fauna!!! Cool gentle breezes. Wide open space. Delicious savoury food available as well
