We went to the park to watch the Saturday performance by the Gombey Dancers - which is fantastic by the way. The park is a pretty place to escape the sun, although you might end up being approached by a homeless person or two. We had to move from our shady bench after a couple of minutes of being annoyed...

We walked through this park wanting to relax a little from shopping and sight seeing. It is beautiful and peaceful. Throughout the park, you find sculptures and a koi pond. Go here if you want to recharge your energy from city life.

A very pretty park which is marred by the homeless that hang around in it being a nuisance. Shame the name was changed as well.

Park was in full bloom, flowers were very photogenic. Visited the moon gate. Watched the wild and roaming roasters. Was told this park was much better than the botanical gardens. Free admission and very short walk from ferry terminal.

Just about one block up Queen Street from the ferry in Hamilton is Par-la-Ville--now called QE II Park. It is just behind the Historical society. It is small but we quickly got acquainted with some of the local fauna & flora. There were chickens and kiskadees, a beautiful Royal Poincianas tree in the center, some statues and even a koi...

We went to Hamilton on Labor Day so the city was shut down for the most part and there were very few locals out. As a result, we had a nearly private day at this park which is situated right downtown. It was a lovely city park with interesting trees and flowers. It was a great place to take a... More

Its a lovely peaceful park on the edge of the town and midday saturday is a Gombey demonstration where you get a better look than that of Harbour night because they are in a square and it is easier to see. The park has some lovely sculptures and statues and plenty of shade where to eat lunch or drink coffee.... More

We stopped for a spell to get out of the heat an crowds. We spent a while chatting with an older lady who was feeding stray cat and chickens under a trellis. There were several sculptures including a couple next to koi pond. Very peaceful. It was full of tourists, locals and folks in business attire on break. This is... More
