We would stroll through the park after dinner to walk off our meal. Enjoyable and peacful grounds where you can look at the sparkling lights on the water in the evenings.

“Relax and Contemplate Some History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

If you are strolling about and happen (as I did) to see this lovely little park on your way, be sure to stop and see the statues of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands and Anne Frank. It is a pretty photo spot, and you can take some lovely pictures with ocean views. Have fun trying to find and photograph the iguanas. A quiet place to contemplate some history and just relax.

“small but beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

A well groomed park right beside the Renaissance Resort where families can go to play ball, see tons of iguanas and the path winds aroun the resort as well for a nice, slow paced walk.

“if you'e in oranjestad, take time to have a stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Very nicely maintained park, on the waterfront and a great place to watch all the basking iguanas!

Wouldn't say it's somewhere we would have gone specifically but as we were exploring the town, it was nice to walk round and see some of the history.

Nice chill out spot after shopping.

Went around the park for a pleasant short walk. Nice setting to take some lovely photos and see iguanas by the water side.
