“Small Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

This is a pretty little park. Nice statue of the Queen with the sea behind her. It's missing benches in the shade. There are benches around the statue area, but too hot in the sun. Didn't see many birds.

I went on the last Queen's Day. So it was a festival and a joyful experience. The water is stunning and the people friendly.

“Lovely gardens, spot the iguana!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

A relaxing place to wander, there are a number of statues including one of Anne Frank. It is well layer out and it was fun trying to spot the huge iguanas that live on the island , they may be crawling around or climbing the trees. The park is located near the Renaissance mall where you can cool off with a nice cold drink or pancakes.

“Very touched by the Anne Frank memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Walking around the Renaissance Hotel, we discovered this little area honouring two connections with The Netherlands: Queen Wilhelmina and Anne Frank. I was particularly touched by the message, offered in various languages, inscribed on the base of the statue. I have included a photo. A lovely place to visit.
