Well kept grounds with plenty of seating areas, this is a good resting point to take in some fluids. Shops very close by selling refreshments

Independence square is just after you cross the Chamberlain bridge to the left.
In the middle of the square is a huge Barbados flag in pavement blocks. At the upper corner is a statue of the first prime minister.
From the square is an excellent view on the Heroes square and Parliament buildings across.
However, the square seems neglected with some decaying blocks where's the flag, most of them very dirty and unusable benches around

Located on the Careenage in the heart of Bridgetown, it's a nice place to chill and enjoy the view of the Barbados Parliament Buildings and National Heroes Square. OK for a quick stop off but it's nothing special really.

Walking across the independence square with its fountain and Amphitheatre seating we passed the larger-than-Life Statue of Former Prime Minister Errol Barrow a Barbadian statesman and the first prime minister of Barbados that dominates the whole square. Created by St. Lucian sculptor Ricky George, it was erected in 2007 and covers an area of approximately 50,000 sq ft.
TIP: Check out when the street market is open on the edge of the square near the Independence Arch and the entrance to the Chamberlin bridge.

I visited Independence Square during a walk around Bridgetown on a cruise ship visit. It's a pretty public space with benches and trees and some lovely views of the Constitution River and the Chamberlain Bridge. if you are in Bridgetown it's worth a quick look, and it's a nice place to sit for a while. Not something you would go out of your way for though.

A small square with a taxi stand in the middle. Nothing worth making an effort unless you need to sit on a bench or take a taxi. Decent view of the big boats docked in Bridgetown. Generous 3.

A very pleasant place to sit but nothing particularly memorable. It’s right beside the river and arched bridge and there are plenty of benches in shady places to ensure you cool off.

Every country set free from colnial rule needs a place to express their freedom and this is the heart of Barbados. It should be a must on a visit to this lovely island and we are glad we came to be with such terrific people.

Typical town square that has seen better days. Nice place to meet for tours, etc. but not a destination. Interesting history though.

Small square close to the bridge over the carenage. A reasonable place to get a bit of shade and rest awhile if you have been tramping around Bridgetown. At the time of our visit in December there was the added bonus of a nativity tableau and a collection of Christmas trees representing the other caribbean islands.
