A wonderful open air park for persons interested in relaxation, walking or jogging. This beautiful park hosts stage shows/concerts and other similar functions. Great place to meet friends for relaxation. Located in the New Kingston area which has a wide variety of evening/night entertainment. Heavily usedy in the evenings and week ends.

This park is kept clean and there is security. I spent a lot of time exercising early before the sun is high and it gets very hot. At night - people exercising give way to social gatherings.

This park is one that is near to Jamaicans it represents them being Emancipated from slavery. This park is well kept the trees are trimmed and the grass is cut and green, nice place for a Sunday evening out with the kids. It even has a jogging trail that goes around the park. The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel overlooks the park... More
