I wouldn't really call this a park but it's well kept and nice for a picnic. There are lots of people jogging through this park and it's kinda connected to a concrete strip, where more joggers and people exercise. The statues are also nice but gaudy.

Basically just a patch of grass with couple of walkways that really do not go anywhere and a statue. Sure, you could have a picnic here but it's so small it might feel a bit awkward. And besides, you are at Aruba so why not to have it on the beach? I actually thought this was part of the resort... More

Cut grass and a few statues I feel like I missed something.. nothing much to see, looked more like it was the front lawn to one of the hotels there.

This is a nice area to walk around in if you are staying downtown... There really isn't anything special about it except for statues and other historical pieces. To is worth visiting if you are in the downtown area.

Nice area in Oranjestad to walk around and get a sense of the area. Saw numerous birds and iguana out sunning themselves. Numerous places to stop and relax with a drink and or light or complete meal.
