National Heroes Park has monuments, statues and information throughout the well kept and beautiful park. They are dedicated to Jamaica's national heroes from the times of slavery to Jamaica's independence from Britain. I would recommend a guided tour to learn about these heroes and the history. The changing of the guards can also be seen every hour during the day.

This could be a great recreational facility if attention is given to bringing it to the standard of Emancipation Park.

If you are in Kingston, you should really walk around here for awhile. This is true history, and where the graves of some of Jamaica's "Hero's", may be viewed. I saw the guards... they were standing there stoic, so I went up to them to see if I could get them to break into smile.....and they did. I was in... More

If you are checking out Jamaica as a tourist, I would recommend skipping Heroes Park. It is really nothing special to see. Just an open space in the middle of Kingston.

This area captures a peek into the history of this beautiful island, there are several monuments dedicated to the forefathers who helped to make that island what it is today. However if you are looking for some grand tour, then this is not the place for you.

Very nice resting place for the National Heroes or important persons of Jamaica. There is an board with informations about the individual it honors. Every hour there is an change of guards, gives the park an extra atrraction to watch. The park is not well maintained!

Sadly, this is an example of an attraction with promise. However, as is, there is nothing in the park or its environs that makes it a worthwhile attraction to learn about to learn about the country, culture or people.

The final resting place of Jamaica's original Heroes.... A beautiful piece of Jamaica's history in a park setting. If you are there for the changing of the guards it is also a nice feel. All the monuments are complete with information of the individuals it honors. And if you are a lover of Reggae music and are wondering where to... More

I was very disappointed with the upkeep pf this park especially since many national heroes are buried there. There were alot of vagrants in there and the beauty of the park was not really appreciated. Just pass by take a few pictures and leave. It is closer to the down town area of Kingston so be careful
