Harris Promenade, San Fernando

After taking the Water Taxi to San Fernando we used one of the Discover T&T maps to find Harris Promenade. 

Named after Lord Harris, who was the Governor of Trinidad from 1846–1854, the promenade is an important feature of the urban landscape of the city. Important buildings are found here including the Supreme Court, City Hall and a church that is over 100 years old. 

With its shady trees on one side, interesting statues and a section of the last train to run through Trinidad, people can find many reasons to explore this space. Below are a few images captured in and around the Promenade.

    These are really good photos. I love the photo of the pigeons. I'm from Trinidad and I've never been to Harris Promenade. I will definitely go there now, it's so beautiful.
