The trees are lovely and the play park is not too bad. There is a unique statute there and a grave which I cannot say what its dedicated to though.

It's only because of its centuries long history and its equally old palmtrees that this place is interesting. But that's all. No activities, no food, nothing at all. Only a small playground. And, for your knowlegde, it's forbidden to lie down on a bench.

Nice shady palm garden. Some of these trees look very old. There's not much to do/ see here but it's a pleasant stroll if you want a bit of peace and quiet.

If you like a quiet area in the middle of a bustling city, surrounded by towering palm trees, this is the spot.

A shady park with tall, ancient royal palms. Some historical sites. However Paramaribo is full of that. Many activities take place on national holidays in this park. Not advisable to pass through after sunset and better to with company.

the history about the park is more interesting than the park itself. not a must see but nice though.

Ok to visit if there is a specific event with lots of people. Be aware of petty theft and pickpockets and opportunists. Not advisable to visit alone or after dark.

This is a park full of high palms amd a bit of history also, with some small statues and a grave. Very nice to visit, it's a clean place with benches to sit and a small playground for children with swings.

Visited the garden after visiting presidential palace. Really a relaxing garden but not adviced to be visited at night. But during day time a good place to get some peace.

Yes actually a bunch of large old palmtrees but it has his charme. We visited the Palmentuin on the day of the indigenous people. A fun day whilst native indians and marroons present them selfs.
