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

I visited the National Heroes Park on a day that it rained. The guards were therefore not on duty nor did the tour guide take us directly into the park to absorb the history of the place. I am sure this is a great Park. Simply go on a day with much better weather.

The National Heroes Park is a fitting place for the graves of a lot of important Jamaican historical men and women, some who are named a National Hero. There is also the grave of the unknown Jamaican soldier of the great war (world war 1), that is guarded by 2 soldiers in full dress uniform. The park is nice and... More

Great place to walk, for exercise or just as a relaxation break. A few more trees would add to the ambiance since it is in a busy trafficked area.

Not the easiest place to get to, and there is very little shade so it can be very hot in the blazing Sun. I felt very proud to be of Jamaican descent while reading about our heroes. Refresh yourself with some coconut water.
