This park was right next to our hotel, and we would walk thru on the way to the West Deck restaurant. Small park, but a neat statue of Anne Frank and also Wilhelmina. Young people hanging out, but all were well behaved.

While you are shopping downtown, stroll by Wilhelmina Park to view one of the local tributes to Dutch colonialism. It's an average type urban setting, but while you are in Oranjestad, why not see it.
