Our guide took us into this park and by some flowering bushes and told us to look for the national bird of Jamaica, which we almost immediately saw more than one of! These lovely hummingbirds are extremely unafraid and we got close enough to take some pictures with our phones! The park grounds are lovely for strolling and getting some... More

I appreciate the solitude in the park that allows one to ponder the struggle of a nation that had to deal with the legacy of slavery and colonialism. The monuments are tastefully done. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because there isn't much activity outside the park to do after you walk around and get tired.

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.
