The Palm Garden is an haunting place especially at late evening. It is shrouded with shadows,eerie rustlings and shadowy figures drifting between the trees.

This garden has its own history it used to belong to the house where the President now lives (white house of Suriname). Nowadays it has security so a safe (lovers) place.

Really really tall palms seem almost ghostly. Not much shade provided as the tree tops so high up. My husband remembers this park when the trees were young and greener. A good place to make kids run around or for a stroll.

The green centre of the town, full of birdlife and toads, a welcome oasis on a hot day walking round the town.
