Port of Spain - Woodbrook, Trinidad and Tobago

Here is a section of one of my contributions to Wikipedia on Green Spaces in Woodbrook, Trinidad and Tobago. First there is the summary which is found at the top of the article in Wikipedia and it is generated through the use of typing skills also known as short cuts which are particular to the Wikipedia programme. So if you are curious, sign up for an account in Wikipedia, read the instructions or try to edit one of the sections so as to learn the how to's  if you are so inclined

Green Spaces
One of the larger and older green spaces in Woodbrook is Adam Smith Square. [29] This square is located on Ariapita Avenue in close proximity to Murray Street and was one of the parks of the old days. Adam Smith Square is surrounded by buildings which have been restored and maintained, many of which now function as business places.
In the weeks preceding Carnival each year, the look of the square changes as stadium style benches are built up by one of the City Corporations in support of Carnival. On Carnival Monday and Tuesday, this square is one of the judging points for mas Bands which elect to cross the stage at this location.
Outside of Carnival, the Square functions as a time out spot as persons sit on benches while visiting any of the businesses in the neighbourhood. On weekends several young families bring their toddlers and young children to the Square to run, play and get in some exercise and bonding time prior to the start of the next week.
In 2015, Adam Smith Square was one of the outdoor locations for a community cinema.[30]
