Originally posted in Wikipedia on Dec 16, 2016 - Queen's Park Oval - Local Art

Here is an extract from the page on Queen's Park Oval in Wikipedia. The information covers the exterior walls of the Oval where art has been placed.  As there are lights coming from the Nelson Mandela Park formerly King George V Park which is used as a sports area, it is possible to view the art in the evening. Depending on the time of day, there are games and spectators in the park so there are persons around what was once a fairly deserted area. 

"Local Art

Around the exterior walls of the Oval (also known as The Wall Project) are large sized prints of works by artists who paint in different medium, such as oil and watercolor. These prints have been placed on the exterior the walls since around 1985 and display abstract works, cultural and nature inspired scenes. Over time, some of the works which have been displayed have been changed to accommodate either a new artist or a new piece of art.

Nelson Mandela Park

To the side of the Nelson Mandela Park which is closest to Serpentine Road are three (3) pieces of art which have been placed there by Digicel after the pieces were selected as the winning pieces of the competition launched to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the City of Port of Spain."
