Its just a small little memorial in the city. It is something to look at while you are visiting the shops in Oranjestad.

It's a small park next to city center with lunch cafes and souvenir stores. We had lunch twice there and liked the place: it's never hot thanks to breeze from the sea, and cafes are diverse with good options. We like The Dutch Pancake House (excellent pancakes, such as Country or Hawaiian) and Casa Tua (great pan fried grouper fillet... More

This park is clean and always accessible to the public and every day, there is some type of activity to enjoy. Families are constantly bringing their children to run around and be kids. Others bring their dogs to play and enjoy the park.

This is a well maintained and beautifully manicured park in Oranjestadt. A lovely statue of the queen is the centerpiece. Throughout the grounds iguanas of various sizes laze around sunning themselves. There are areas to sit and enjoy the cool breezes and paths to walk around.

I really like this park because it's got shade and iguanas. These things are all over the place but you need to use a zoom to get a photo because if you get to close they take off like a bottle rocket, so be warned about that, but they're not dangerous at all. I do suggest to take a quick... More

We walk here every morning after breakfast, and take some bread to feed the fish from the bridge by the lagoon. There is a beautiful statue of Queen Wilhelmina in the park, and a lovely statue of Anne Frank.

This park is inbetween the Renaissance Ocean Suites and the West Deck Restaurant. It's very clean and a nice place to relax. We love walking through this park.

Not much to say about this little park. Clean? Sure. quaint? Yeah, I guess. Nice statue ? I guess so but it' snow museum piece. Just a place to stroll while waiting for someone. Not many people there.

Located adjacent to the Renaissance Aruba Ocean Suites, this is a pretty little park for a nice stroll. It has a lovely view of the water where you can watch the boats pass by and enjoy seeing the pelicans diving for their food.
