Wilhelmina Park, Oranjestad

(3.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Wilhelmina Park and other Oranjestad attractions using our handy Oranjestad vacation planner.

  • Queen Wilhelmina was the longest-reigning Dutch monarch ruling the Netherlands from 1898 to 1948. There is a marble statue of the queen that was erected in 1955. There were several iguanas in the park...  more »
  • Not worth going out of your way to get to for sure. If you see it while passing by it's enough. I wouldn't recommend this as a destination point. 
  • Really pass several times of night can walk from there to the part of back where leave them cruises and find banquitas to sit you or a place beautiful, romantic and comfortable for walking also can go from there until almost the airport by all the ride peatonal.es cute and quiet
