Six great Easter picnic spots in T&T

However some parks are definitely worth visiting and are perfect for an Easter picnic; here are six of our favourites:

1. Royal Botanical Gardens

This is an oldie but goodie for many Trinbagonians. It’s next to the Emperor Valley Zoo, so you can start the day visiting the animals and end it with some pelau, coleslaw and some cold Apple J under the trees at the Botanical Gardens. The kids can even do some kite-flying at the Queen’s Park Savannah opposite.


2. Palmiste Park

If heading to the Southland, Palmiste Park is beautiful and a lovely spot to have a picnic. There are lots of shady trees and ponds to view and relax with the family over the Easter holiday.


3. Yerette’s

Yerette’s, located in Maracas Valley, is a private hummingbird sanctuary and is definitely a sight to see. Dozens of hummingbirds come in to feed and provide a breathtaking viewing experience.


4. The Retreat

Hidden in Chaguaramas is a lovely picnic spot that boasts of spring-fed pools, mini-golf and 7 acres of nature to enjoy. For lunch, bring out the pot of curry and wash it down with a red Solo.

5. La Vega Estate

La Vega Estate is well-known as a beautiful estate, full of trees and other facilities for a picnic. Feel free to pack a cooler with food and some cold drinks and relax with while the kids play nearby.


6. Tobago Adventure Farm and Nature Reserve

Located in Plymouth, Tobago, this beautiful nature reserve is a must-see, filled with beautiful hummingbirds, mot mots, flowers and more.
