This is a local park in Charlotte Amalie with a few benches. The trees had been decorated for kwanza by the local schools. There were some statues and several chickens.

A gem we found and although our tour guide wrote that they are closed on Sundays our taxi driver said that they would be open because our ship was there. We were lucky!

This attraction has seen better days. Since I visited on a wet rainy day, the park was almost empty. Had difficulty finding a dry bench. However, since it was not my first visit, I was able to have an appreciation for it. My grand daughter was disappointed, however.

Not worth visiting ,as all the benches are bird dropping stained. It is ,however, a cool respite before or after shopping at the pier area do downtown. The best thing there is a replica of the Liberty Bell, donated for the 350 th anniversary of the Jamestown pioneered who spent 3 days there before moving to Jamestown.

First Baobob trees I ever saw for real. Nice plants, statues, lizards. good to stretch your legs or cool off. Check out the post office across the street which has cool murals.

A peaceful place to reflect on the beauty of the island and it's distinct history. The natives are friendly and bring some snacks for the little chicks running behind mom.
