Situated north of the Queen's Park Savannah and adjacent to President's House , the Botanic Gardens covers an area of 38 hectares. It was laid out in 1818 by Governor Ralph Woodford, and is home to several varieties of tropical and sub-tropical trees, along with trees from India, Burma and South America. A section of the grounds houses a cemetery known as "God's Acre," where the remains of several national figures are interred. The gardens pose as the backdrop for wedding photos and family gatherings, and are a favourite spot of nature enthusiasts.
