Lovely park to walk aroound

We stopped here on our day tour of Kingston. A lovely oasis in the city. Loved the statues of the man and woman riding out of the water.

Centrally located, the park offers benches and lawns to rest on and the breeze makes it even better. There is also a short running track.

Emancipation Park was one of most beautiful and cleanest of parks. Visited both during the daytime and night. On both occasions, the setting is tranquil. There is a sense of peace there. You will find people training in groups and others doing a run. For those of us who want to relax and take in the scene and atmosphere, there... More

What a nice surprise! Beautifully kept grounds and lots of open space for a walk on a smooth surface loop. Lovely trees with labels and a wide lawn with benches here and there. The men's restroom was clean; ladies' room not visited.

Surrounded by street 'vendours' trying to push their junk on you. As a first time visitor it was a bit daunting and there's very little to do in the park other than sit.

We didn't spend that long here, we were on our way to the hotel across the road for dinner, but wandered through the park. It feels very safe (as does most of new Kingston) and I just loved the sculptures there. I would have liked to have spent more time there.

Fairly safe and good option for recreation and jogging however super crowded so you will be bumping into people or dodging them a lot. It's free which is always a plus!

This is a beautiful park. The gardens are well maintained and there are several zones to enjoy. The fountains are great because of the heat - you can kick your sandals off and cool off a bit. The statue is - impressive. Hadn't realised the male and female figures were crafted totally nude with everything explicit so some parents may... More
