This is one of my favourite parks in St Thomas. Not only a great place for a walk but it has a lot of cool places for photography. It offers wonderful places to photograph wedding, family portraits and model shoots. Plus a whole lot more.

Approx. 5 minute drive, 20-25 minute walk. The splash pas is now turned off, but play area and washroom are open.
