This photograph gives a view of the San Fernando Hill also known as the Naparima Hill from Circular Road. The hill is the highest point in the Naparima Plains, consisting of approximately 100 acres and used to be dome-shaped with a flattened top, a major characteristic of the San Fernando skyline, but is now about a third of its original size. Quarry operators extracted her soil for road construction in Naparima until 1977. Consequently, much of the natural flora and fauna were lost. The Hill was declared a National Park in 1980, and attempts were made to restore some of the vegetation and install facilitates for residents and tourists.
