Emancipation Park, Kingston

4.3
#2 of 10 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.

  • Well kept grounds with friendly security. Lovely little walk ways and lawns. Area for table tennis and group workouts and a walking/running track. Fountains with water show. A good rest spot in the middle of crossroad new Kingston metropolitan feel. All around well maintained and true to it's expectation.
  • I The best place to exercise in the mornings. 2 The verdant landscape and beautiful environment put you at peace with yourself and the world at large. 3 You walk and talk with friendly people From all walks of life. 4 Visitors from all over the world staying at nearby Marriott and Pegasus visit the park to exercise and engage in friendly banter. 5 The West Indian umpires from the eastern Caribbean visit every year when there is a match on and give us free tickets to see matches. 6 An added attraction is the Gym donated by China Harbour. 6 The park and it's surroundings are safe and secure. Security guards and cameras ensure this is so. 7 I have been walking their for years. This is how I keep balanced mentally and physically
  • The park is a great place to hang out with some monuments of historical significance to admire. It remains open until 11 pm and is actively policed by dedicated security. There is a dedicated jogging track with two table tennis tables with nets included. You would only need to provide racquet and ball. There is a drinking fountain and restroom facilities which are adequately maintained.
  • Emancipation pack is a big and its a marvelous places, especially on Christmas time I enjoyed walking 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
  • It's not what it used to be. The beautiful water fountain seems to have died but outside of that, it's a pretty nice spot. The bathrooms are very clean for a public place. It's marveling. The ring road provides a nice place for an early morning or evening jog and there is adequate seating just in case you want to just kick back
