Emancipation Park, Kingston

(4.4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • As a guy that likes to take walks, Emancipation Park is a nice place to do so. It's quiet and relaxing, no one in the park trying to sell you things. It's a nice place for a bit of photography as well. It's worth a visit.
  • Great place to jog or just relax and take a breather. Take a book, a friend or your music and just enjoy the park ambience. During the night, expect to be entertained by the colourful water show of the fountain ⛲
  • Emancipation Park is a refuge for many who seek solitude and a soothing ambience away from the hustle and bustle of daily living. It's an oasis where one can rejuvenate among its lush seven-acre landscape that symbolizes the legendary beauty of the island of Jamaica. Emancipation Park provides a very welcome oasis of greenery and tranquility to the heart of New Kingston. Most visitors come to the park to relax, eat lunch, read a book or chat with friends. However, more active pursuits are also on offer, with a 500m jogging track around the park's perimeter and a permanent stage where concerts and shows are occasionally held. Soothing water features are dotted around the park, one of which can be synchronised to music so that its display can compliment any musical entertainment. There are also a wide range of floral displays, featuring native and imported plants.
  • This Park is right across the street from the Pegasus Hotel and is warm and welcoming. Just around this park you can conveniently find things to eat and drink for any budget and a small fun park right across the street. Within the park you will find photogriphers near the exits to record your event or even free weekly workout sessions to the sides of the park. Their is also an out track you can use at any time to jog and work out. You can even stretch your brain or reflexes playing Chess, Checkers, or table tennis/badminton. #EmancipationPark even host's some very interesting event on their stage in the center of the park. Stay tuned and check back for Pictures to mach each description.
