The Queen’s Park Savannah: heart of a city

The Queen's Park Savannah is the heart and lungs of the Trinidad and Tobago capital, Port of Spain. A huge open space between downtown and the Northern Range, it is the favourite haunt of joggers and walkers, footballers and cricketers, connoisseurs of coconuts, roast corn and oysters, skateboarders and kite- flyers. A former sugar estate preserved for the people, the Savannah is to Port of Spain what Central Park is to New York. Marlon Rouse captures some of its many moods.
