This Park is more like an estate in the middle of Bridgetown, reached along Constitution Road, and includes the former residence of the Commander for the West Indies of the British Garrison. As such it is imposing in the British Imperial tradition, with whitewashed buildings, grounds that appear a little tired in the dry season and in need ofr a... More

Nothing remarkable about this park, notwithstanding that parks are always nice in a busy town, except for the 1000 year old baobab. How this non-native tree happened to arrive in Barbados and grow there is explained on the plate. Imagine a West African seed braving the Atlantic currents and finding its roots on the opposite side of this island... Isn't... More

We walked from the Cruise Ship dock into town so we could walk along the waterfront boardwalk. When we got to the park there were several unsightly characters hanging out there. One tried to approach us but, unfortunately for him and fortunate for us there was a policeman close by and chased him away. It is a very small park... More

Queen's Park, Bridgetown's only park, came about December 1782, as a result of the American Revolutionary War that a permanent British garrison should remain in Barbados. Queen’s House, along with twelve acres, became a public park in 1909. The Baobab Tree or Monkey Bread Tree, which is part of the park, is about 250 years old and has a trunk... More

Queen's Park is part of the essence of Barbadian History and is just as beautiful today as it always was. My most recent visit was at Agrofest where it housed hundreds of Entrepreneurs exhibiting their wares...Beautiful!!!

Needs an updated children's area, a water feature would be nice and the grounds need some attention. It is a good place to have a function but not truly a park for everyday family fun.

We strolled around in this park as we wanted to get some shade. We found the huge tree and got dome good information about the park from some local caretakers. If you want to get out of the buz in Bridgetown and want to have it quiet and calm - this is the place!

If you are walking around Bridgetown then it is not out your way to visit. The huge tree is worth seeing. Unfortunately we could not see into the main building as there were boards around it. Hopefully this means renovation and a better experience in the future.
