Queen Elizabeth Park (formerly Par-la-Ville Park) is well-sited and maintained. The Historical Society Museum, Perot's Post Office and the National Library are all effectively within its grounds. There is a level entrance from the street, but charming steps down what appear to be old fortifications at the west end. Sadly some of Bermuda's few down-and-outs also find the park a... More

The previous reviewer has focussed on the Gombey dancing on Saturday lunchtimes during the summer months, but this park has something to offer throughout the year. It is also known as Par-la-ville park after the post office and the house that was originally the home of Bermudas first postmaster. That was 200 years ago. The rubber tree was planted in... More

I had read on the internet that every Saturday during the summer, the traditional Gombey Dancers would perform from 1 PM to 2 PM at Queen Elizabeth Park on Queen Street in downtown Hamilton, Bermuda. We were greeted outside the gate to Queen Elizabeth Park by a "town crier" in full English Colonial garb. He was ringing a large bell... More

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
