Queen's Park Savannah
Queen's Park Savannah, or “the Savannah" as Trinidadians call it, is the largest green space in the capital city, Port-of-Spain. The 296-acre park is almost 200 years old, making it one of the oldest and largest parks in the Caribbean. And Queen’s Park Savannah holds special significance on Trinidad because it’s the centerpoint for the island’s massive Carnival celebration. The Grand Stand at the southern end of the park and an adjacent temporary North Stand form the Big Yard where the Parade of Bands is broadcast and the Carnival King and Queen competitions are held. The park is also home to various sporting fields, gardens, concerts, and along the park’s edge, you’ll find the Magnificent Seven, a row of eccentric Victorian mansions, including Whitehall, Queen’s Royal College and Stollmeyer's Castle.
