“Serenity in the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Emancipation Park is a gem in the heart of Kingston. You would never believe this is the same city so many people are afraid to visit.

The park is bustling with endless activity. Yoga classes, dance classes, live music, concerts and all for FREE. There are some paddlers in the area but none in the actual park and they are not aggressive.

A great place to spend an evening relaxing, eating ice cream or enjoying your jerk take out from local restaurants in walking distance.

“Never get tired of visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I've been here countless of times. Whenever I'm in the Kingston area this is a must stop for me. My last visit was on independence day. The grounds are beautiful. The park is clean and I felt safe with security being through out the park.

I enjoyed the quiteness and tranquility of this park. It was truly a relaxing x-perience. The monument of the couple was definetly a conversation piece.
