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

Clean park with walking paths adjoining the renaissance ocean suites. Not a playground type park but while I was there the iguanas were fed some greens and there were around 30 out!

Small but well maintained and clean park, including a beautiful statue of Anne Frank. In the park there are dozens of Green Iguanas and for me it became a sport to photograph these in a nice way, so I spent a lot of time here.

We had rented a car and drove to the under-developed side of the island. I feel its a must to see because its different than where the hotels are situated. Be sure to take a tour of the bat cave when you are over in the park. Its interesting to see the goats and wild donkeys roaming freely. I don't... More
