Queen's Park is part of the essence of Barbadian History and is just as beautiful today as it always was. My most recent visit was at Agrofest where it housed hundreds of Entrepreneurs exhibiting their wares...Beautiful!!!

Needs an updated children's area, a water feature would be nice and the grounds need some attention. It is a good place to have a function but not truly a park for everyday family fun.

If you are walking around Bridgetown then it is not out your way to visit. The huge tree is worth seeing. Unfortunately we could not see into the main building as there were boards around it. Hopefully this means renovation and a better experience in the future.

I had read that this baobab tree was in Queen's Park - after getting some direction help from a couple very friendly locals, we found the tree easily within the park. Definitely worth the quick side trip to visit it - just amazing how large this tree is. My kids loved it as well - great photo op as well!

The sun has certainly set on this part of the British Empire. The grand house, the gardens and fountains all in a total state of disrepair, neglect and dissolution. For many reasons Barbadians want to ignore the grandeur of the British regime. But to allow this part of their history to rot away is a shame. Worth the visit to... More

A nice walk from Brownes Beach or downtown. We taxied to the beach, then walked to the park and back to the pier. The baobab tree is a sight for those interested and I was; not much else is. There are interesting sites and green spaces to walk through on the way from the west.

Queen's House , the official residence of the officer commanding the troops , was purchased by the Government in 1905 when the garrison left Barbados . The grounds , now called Queen's Park were landscaped and opened to the public in 1909. There is in the grounds a Baobab tree that is over a 1000 years old.

It is traditional in Barbados to go to church at 5am and then go to Queens Park dressed in your finery. There will be stalls, The Police Band and other things to amuse. Barbados people dress up to the nines and then parade through the park Walk with an umbrella to shield yourself from the sun. The park is wheelchair... More
