Wilhelmina Park, Oranjestad

3.7
#5 of 7 in Parks in Oranjestad
A great starting point to any walking tour of Aruba, Wilhelmina Park is a small tropical park watched over by a majestic marble statue of the longest reigning Dutch monarch. Opened in 1955 to honor Queen Wilhelmina, the park's winding paths and lush green shades act as a welcome sanctuary from the heat of the streets. A statue of Anne Frank also occupies the gardens, a quote from her diary inscribed underneath. Take a short turn around the gardens, looking out for the small colony of iguanas that usually laze away the days here. If you bring lettuce you'll soon be their best friend. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Oranjestad holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Wilhelmina Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The Wilhelmina Park is worth a visit. There is a lot to see. Not only the oldest statue of Aruba, from 1955, by, of course, Wilhelmina, but also a statue of Anne Frank and just across the road the Monumento di 18 March. On the sea side, but also in the grass, the trees and Hedges are many iguanas. And no little ones.
