I enjoyed the park as it gave insight into the history of the island as a former colony of the Netherlands.

Took my grandsons for a walk while the women shopped. It captures part of the harbor and looking out at the Caribbean sea.have done this several times, and love the views. Especially when a cruise ship is getting underway.

Statues and iguanas, so don't get your hopes up. Must be the largest colony of iguanas living/nesting under that tree near the water.

We found this park by accident when were looking for the West Deck restaurant. Its a nice well maintained and perfectly manicured park that's not too crowded so its a good place to sit or take a relaxing stroll but it is quite small. The statues of Queen Wilhelmina and Anne Frank are good tourist areas for taking pictures, but... More

We went on a tour in this park with Depalma Tours Jeep safary, it was a very interesting and fun view of the natural park which gave a view of how the island must have looked prior to all the development.

This park lies just outside the family portion of the Marriott Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino hotel complex in Oranjestad. It is a nice park, well cared for, and has a statue of Quenn Wilhelmina and Anne Frank. No one does anything in this small park during the day, but in the evening, a lot of young people are there...

The park is not very big but it was a nice stroll and the path went along the water around the Renaissance hotel and the market place. My kids really liked the Iguanas and my daughter was doing a rough count and there was easily more than 50. So if you are in the downtown area and the market place... More
