Emancipation Park, Kingston

(480+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Seek solitude and soothing ambience away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life at Emancipation Park. With 2.8 hectares (7 acres) of landscaped features, the park was developed to symbolize the beauty of Jamaica. Many tropical flowers and trees define the park, including Jamaica’s national tree the Blue Mahoe. Appreciate the beautifully crafted 3.5 m (11 ft) bronze sculpture created by Jamaican artist Laura Facey. Take a break on the lush green grass, have a picnic, or utilize the park’s popular jogging track. If you’re lucky, you may be able to catch a free concert at the park’s stage area.

  • A relaxed environment to sit back, unwind and enjoy the sounds of Jamaica's Capital, Kingston. Also a good spot for a great workout if you are a workout buff. Clubs, Hotels and various food establishments are literally just a stone throw away if you want to either grab a beer or treat your taste buds to delectable meals flavoured by the spice of the island.
  • The park is beautiful. Take a few pictures. Make sure you see the Freedom Song sculpture as well. Great place for a walk with a lover or to bring small children for family time. There was a health expo going on when I was there with lots of booths full of information, activities, and a huge Zumba class onstage. Just a cool place to relax, bring a pet or get some exercise
  • Great spot to spend the evening. The heat is scorching hot in the day. Good place for your routine jogging.
  • This is a very historical place in Jamaica which gives information on Jamiaca history. Very interesting and beautiful. Lots of trees and plants also seating area. A great meeting place to have picnics.
  • Nice hangout spot especially for reading and picnics. Its a very spacious park so congestion won't be a problem unless an event is being hosted there. Its also a great place to host a large event. This place is famous for the iconic naked statues
