“In need of Restoration”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Barbados has many historical parks and on venturing to this one, you are greeted with sadness on how little is done in trying to preserve it. It is in Bridgetown for starters. There is no real appeal to understanding this Park at all. Some parts are derelict and a shame no matter how they try to upkeep the grounds.

“An old Bajan tradition!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

It has maintained its purpose over the years - a nice walk in the Park, to watch cricket, sit and relax by the fountains and other open activities.

“baobab tree worth a visit, but still rather disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2011

we had gone to queen's park to see the baobab tree--which is supposed to be the largest/oldest in the caribbean. the tree was, well, large. but otherwise nothing really spectacular. in fact, it's almost easy to miss the tree bc they haven't really made it a focus.... it was in a corner of the park and the only indication was a wooden post next to you telling you THIS is the famous baobab tree. we took a few pictures, and was out of there. the whole visit took us less than 10 minutes.

i had expected queen's park itself to be very grand and beautiful, but instead it's really nothing special. the grounds are neatly kept, but consists mostly of grass and some trees and not a lot of flora or anything else that is really worth seeing. we were there around midday and it was quiet, with a few people here and there resting on benches. luckily, we had planned to walk around town that day so queen's park was on the way. but otherwise, it's not a destination worthy of a detour.

i would still recommend the park only based on the baobab tree, as it is noteworthy. but if you have more exciting alternative attractions to visit, by all means do that.
