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.

The statues of Queen Wilhelmina and Anne Frank are good tourist areas for taking pictures, but... More

nice quiet place to walk or just sit and rest, go there each time we visit the island, when we first went there it was all grown up, but now it is a really nice place to visit and walk, been going for about 18 years

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!
