Nature Park, with lots of flowers. It is presently being renovated, but there is a play area and seating where you can sit down and rest your feet. There is also lawn grass where you can pack a picnic lunch, spread your blanket and have a siesta.

I expected a little more, specially considering that it is where the most important heroes of the actual Jamaican history lay there. It is a visit that will take you no more the an hour if you are in the vicinity, very clean and well guarded.

The park has monuments to major leaders who shaped the history of Jamaica. There were tombs of couple of them. This place will appeal to people interested in the political background of Jamaica.

National Heroes Park has monuments, statues and information throughout the well kept and beautiful park. They are dedicated to Jamaica's national heroes from the times of slavery to Jamaica's independence from Britain. I would recommend a guided tour to learn about these heroes and the history. The changing of the guards can also be seen every hour during the day.
