Peaceful and history filled. If you are a Jamaican citizen or visiting this is a must see. The individuals laid to rest here are important to the foundation of our country.

amazingly designed monuments in memory of Jamaican heroes in very well maintained gardens guarded by armed soldiers.

The park in itself looks abandoned. No benches, barely any trees, more dirt than grass... It's actually very depressing. The monuments are within a wall in the middle of the park. They have small plaques explaining who the heroes are. Don't go out of your way to see this place.

Visited the National Heroes Park as part of the TUI Kingston and Blue Mountains tour.

Just missed the changing of the guards but the soldiers are happy to let you stand next to them for a photo, out of politeness ask first.

During our short stop we got to see the memorials of the first three Jamaican prime minister's

As a Jamaican I appreciate that there is somewhere to pay tribute to those great heroes that helped to establish the country, however there is so much lacking and it is in need of a major face lift. Someone call a landscape contractor!

The changing of the guard was cool to see, and with some investment this could be somewhere that tourists could appreciate.

I am regular traveller to Jamaica due to family but I very rarely do tourist stuff especially in Kingston.
I had visited the National Gallery and they were photos on the wall of some of the monuments in the heroes park...

It was a lovely and peaceful place to visit and it was lovely to see the National Defence in their ceremonial dress with shined shoes, pristine uniform and polished belts (as a public servant in the UK, I understand the hours of preparation this takes.) I even saw the 'change of guard' which was awesome.

However, it does need a lot of work. I understand it was HOT out; it was about 35° with no wind and the place was deserted. There was no one around apart from locals (I assume) under a tree and others sleeping in the shadow of some of the monuments.

There was no signage stating what it was from the outside and no signage once inside apart from where some of them lie.

The grass was like straw in places regardless of having water pipes everywhere. The monuments themselves seem to have more TLC and attention than the garden itself.
The signage needs some restoration.

I don't know how often this is used but I REALLY want this to be a national park to be proud of and something which I could do to again and again! (It's Jamaica! I expect it to be hot.) But I think an restoration project is essential.

The change of guard in the UK is often a massive occasion where people flock (especially tourists) ... with local hotels offering this as an attraction, it could regenerate this park to its former greatness.
