It's ok- it's free at least! Really though, I don't think there's much to do here unless you have kids with you.

We loved walking through the Palmentuin every time we headed downtown from our hotel. The area was serene, and it was so novel to be in a sprawling palm forest in the middle of a national capital! It would be a great place for a...More

Place is fairly green with lots of tall indigenous trees and plants, good for taking outdoor photos, or just hanging out.

Not recommend at night at all but during the day it's nice to go for a walk here. The location is close to the city centre

Very nice place to chill out. High plam trees offers appreciated shelters in hot days of Paramaribo. I heard park might be dangerous at night, but I never checked that..:)

My cousin and I visited this park where our father road bikes when they were young boys and girls to kiss when they were teens. It's peaceful, well-maintened and had sentimental value for us.

This park is "made" of old and very tall palm trees, that look quite impressive swinging with the wind...but there isn't much else. The park isn't big: it offers a lovely little walk in the shade during the hot day, and you might probably sit...More
