I'm so glad I stepped out of the hotel (the Courtleigh) briefly to walk down the street and visit the lovely oasis in the midst of the town of New Kingston.

A picturesque place that is perfect for picnics or just an evening to hang out. Take a walk in the park and leave all your troubles there.

My best friend and I were staying at the Courtyard Marriott hotel which is basically right across the street from the park. One morning, we took a lovely stroll after a night of entertainment. We decided instead of going in the sleep, we go over to the park and relax after the night of events. It was fairly early. I... More

What a wonderful park that would be in place in any upscale residential neighborhood in the states. Most importantly to me, there is a well maintained running path around the park (500 meters). This track is constantly in use by walkers, joggers, runners, locals, and tourists. Like many other parks in the states, it is constantly in use by others... More

The Park is a good place to escape from the city for a moment. Pick up some food, drink or why not a fruit and enjoy it here.

Pleasant park in the middle of Kingston. Good to sit and relax. Small jogging track too. Concert pavilion looks good though no concerts whilst we were there.

Nice park for children, nice and safe. Only fault is the clown trying to tempt children to buy balloons with money that they don't have. I told my son no and the clown kept on coming back to taunt him, then making him cry because he wanted a balloon badly.

We stopped by the park with a group of people and snapped a lot of pictures. The park was clean and inviting and I definitely felt safe here.
