Emancipation Park, Kingston

4.3
#2 of 9 in Parks in Kingston
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.

  • Emancipation Park in Kingston and my husband got in the evening, at the end of the scorching sun. Surprised by its scale and diversity of vegetation. And at the same time we feel sometimes as if there's no one around and ... You can and on the grass to rest, and a clown come across and Watch exciting moments of Jamaican. And the scents of orchids and bougainvillea will be remembered forever!

  • It's in the middle of downtown Kingston. It's a peaceful, spacious park. There's an arch there for a wedding ceremony. There are colorful flowers around. There's a large sculpture at the main entrance...  more »

  • A wonderful place to hang out with friends and family. Plenty persons go there for exercise and fitness activities. You even have some fitness groups there in the evenings that offer free exercise lessons. Family and friends can relax on the grass and have fun with games and picnics. Also a great place for wedding photos, that one will have to pay for. Free parking is limited especially on weekdays but there is a a reasonable parking close by. From my experience the paid parking service is only on weekdays.
  • Great outdoor space. Well manicured lawns. Great for pictures. Nice jogging trail. Good for outdoor events. And who can deny the beauty of such a big green space in the middle of the city. With New Kingston's hustle and bustle a causal stroll will let you forget where you are!
  • Best place in Kingston to walk for exercise. They are open late, with lights and security in place. There is covered parking at the NHT multi-level facility. 0.5Km laps allow you to easily set your target or to push past it for just "one more lap". Whether local or visiting, you can safely walk or slowly jog. Not the best place for running as it can get a little crowded with slower moving people. All shapes, sizes and ages walk here in everything from work clothes to working-out clothes. Give it a try!
  • A beautiful garden space in the midst of an urban setting. There is no cost for entry. Security is provided around the clock for the visitors to safely enjoy the park. Security personnel also ensure that visitors respect the space by treating it well.
  • Emancipation pack is a big and its a marvelous places, especially on Christmas time I enjoyed talk through the park with families and friends. I love listening to the Christmas song. Most of all emancipation park is a place where you can sit and relax your mind. Love always
