More washrooms added to Botanic Gardens, Band Stand refurbished

    The refurbished band stand of the Botanic Gardens

    You no longer have to walk all the way to the back of the Botanic Gardens in Port of Spain to use the washroom.

    Two new, additional public washrooms have been installed near the main entrance to complement the existing facilities near the nursery.

    The Agriculture Ministry hopes this would provide an ease, particularly for the elderly and persons who use wheel chairs.

    Also, the Band Stand in the gardens has been reopened as it was fully refurbished back to its original design as done in 1899.

    A ceiling fan, soft indoor ceiling lights, soft outdoor lights, and a wheel chair ramp were added.

    The Band Stand normally hosts small concerts by the Office of the President, the state or NGOs and is also a popular for photo shoots.
