“place to visit”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

it used to be an ugly edge of the island with just dirt, the city fixed it and today it is worth to be seen and it's right next to Martello gardens, place which is worth to be seen too ... location right next to the Atlantic ocean, relaxing and pleasant area

“A little surprise on my bike ride through town”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is a quaint little memorial just off of Higgs beach. There are a lot of great columns with interesting information about the Africans who inhabited the island and of African culture. Worth a stop on your way to the beach,

I enjoyed checking this place out with my nephews. This island is rich in history and this is a definite stop to learn more about what lives were a part of it.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

It's a quick stop, but worth doing. The plaques are informative and well done. It's an easy bike ride from the Duval Street area.
