La Savane, Fort-de-France

3.0
#2 of 6 in Parks in Arrondissement of Fort-de-France
A common meeting place among locals, La Savane, once known as the Garden of the King, dates back to the 19th Century. The 12.5 acre (5.05 ha) park offers shade, tall trees, park benches, and walkways. Head to the center of the park to find the decapitated statue of Josephine de Beauharnais, Napoleon's first wife and Empress of France. She convinced her husband to reinstate slavery in the area following the revolution that abolished it. In her left hand she holds a locket featuring a portrait of Napoleon.

  • Small corner of herbs in the middle of fort of France. Nice to walk around or have a drink. You will find Qq statues. Could have been better laid out.

  • Looking at the map of the city I expected a good Park with a beautiful vegetation. In fact rather large green rectangle with few things to discover. For more on Sunday all kiosks (or almost) are closed.
