Outdoor Activities

Situated north of the Queen's Park Savannah and adjacent to President's House, the Botanic Gardens covers an area of 38 hectares. It was laid out in 1818 by Governor Ralph Woodford, and is home to several varieties of tropical and sub-tropical trees, along with trees from India, Burma and South America. A section of the grounds houses a cemetery known as "God's Acre," where the remains of several national figures are interred. The gardens pose as the backdrop for wedding photos and family gatherings, and are a favourite spot of nature enthusiasts.
