This is an open, green space next to the sea and Fort St Louis. There are some interesting trees, a good place for a stroll or a picnic. Children can play on the grass, adults also! Sometimes, one can spot wild iguanas and orange-winged parrots....More

Napoleon's wife had a statue erected, but when she re-instated slavery, the locals decapitated the statue.. Interesting, nothing outstanding,.

Nice place to stroll near the Cruise Port. There are some restaurants and bars. The statues around the place are very interesting.

This is a very large park, with everything worth seeing in Fort de France just a few steps away. It's not a sight to see just on its own, but rather one to take in while you are seeing everything else in the city.

It's pretty much grass and 10 palm trees, no signs no nothing. Nice for a walk through FDF but nothing to come in particular.

La Savene is a relatively small green space near the fort and the harbor. On a daily basis there is not much going on. I'm sure it is densely packed during celebrations and holidays. It is notable for the beheaded statue of Napoleon's wife, Josephine,...More

We stayed very close to this park so before and after our cruise we spent time in this park. The food in some of the stalls is good remembering it is islands and of a French flavour if you get that. If you are looking...More

Park area is a bit run down and the statue of Josephine has been vandalised but the night time street food stalls are high quality but pretty expensive.
