Amazing tree
Mar 2020 • Couples
We visited the park to see the ancient Boabab tree. There are only 2 boababs in the Carribbean and they are both in Barbados. This is the bigger of the two. It is mind-blowingly enormous and awe inspiring to stand next to a 1000 yr old tree.

Park and Fountain seemed uncared for. Tree worth seeing.
Jul 2019
We drove to see the tree which was pretty cool. It sits in the park which didn't see too well maintained or visited. The fountain looked unloved and was empty.

Worth to drive by or stop on the way to downtown Bridgetown, but I wouldn't make special plans to see otherwise.

Nothing special
Mar 2019 • Solo
I went whilst do my own walking tour of Bridgetown. It’s only two minutes walk from St Michaels Cathedral.

There were sadly a lot of rough sleepers hanging about and it didn’t seem safe. I did walk round the building were closed and the fountain was empty

I saw one big balboas tree and a few buildings from the outside plus the run down fountain and bandstand but there were some newer energy saving model houses too, it was an odd mixture of things

There were kids swings

Great day out for the Agrofest
Feb 2019 • Couples
We attended the first day of Argofest which runs over three days - Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is a real family day out, although we attended on the Friday it was full of school children and there were hundreds of them with their teachers. There was a large number of farm animals on show - pigs, sheep, cows, goats as well as rabbits, gold fishes, horses. An Avery was indoors with a large number of parrots, birds, peacocks. A stage area where local school children displayed their dancing talents. For the adults there were displays of farm plant and machinery. Information stands giving advise on eating habits and diabetes control. A vast array of fruit and vegetables to purchase. As well as a huge number of food outlets and stalls selling gifts.

The Park for All!
Oct 2018 • Solo
Queens Park is serene, spacious and perfect for family picnics, picnic for two, OR picnic for one! You can possibly enjoy a game of cricket, visit the newly renovated theater, or stroll the lovely gazebo and luscious grounds!

Baobab tree
Sep 2018 • Couples
We came here to visit this magnificent tree, the Baobab tree. It stood in all its splendour, still with a few beautiful flowers hanging down. We feel very privileged to have seen it. The park itself is a nice area with plenty of trees to get some shade on a hot day.

A relaxing place
Jul 2018 • Couples
We went to this park on a very hot afternoon, very pleasant grounds including a massive baobab tree which was still in flower.

Amazing tree
Apr 2018
The tree is absolutely stunning to see, its vast and very impressive to see something that has lived for a very long time. What is a great shame is that it is not more cared for and that the surroundings are a bit run down. Definitely worth stopping by if you are into trees, especially ancient ones.

An ongoing project....
Jul 2018 • Couples
Queens Park House seems to have been completely refurbished since the last photos were added to TA. It looks very smart and is now an arts venue. The other buildings in the grounds of the park have had work too but the gardens themselves, and some of the features (like the fountain) still need work. The giant Boabab tree seems to have had a hair-cut too, as it is no longer as tall as it was, although still an impressive thing to see.

Relaxing park
Jun 2018 • Couples
Queen's Park is a very well maintained park on the outskirts of Bridgetown that has some enormous trees growing there, possibly hundreds of years old. Lots of mature trees and shrubs and grass areas make this park a relaxing place to come.
