Mandela Park is not worthy of the name. Half Way Tree is an area that as a resident of Kingston we try to avoid - it has heavy pedestrian and other traffic and is incredibly noisy and chaotic. It is dirty and a home for street people. It hardly deserves the name "park" as there is nothing but old concrete.... More

This park was created and named after Nelson Mandela. I think he would be SHOCKED to see the state it is now in. In short, it is a dump!!!! Avoid it at all cost.

The place is rundown. There is too much activity there for it not to be regularly maintained and supervised. The landscaping is poor, the derelicts make it their hang out, and ruin the aesthetic appearance. It should be monitored much better to preserve the natural beauty of the place.
