Kingston’s largest green space is National Heroes Park, a 50-acre former horse track that now features monuments to important figures from Jamaican history. Among them are monuments and tombs to people like Marcus Garvey, Normal Manley and Sir Alexander Bustamante, among many others. There’s also a war memorial to Jamaicans who died in WWI, which was relocated here from an earlier locations, and it’s the site of memorial gatherings on Remembrance Day.
National Heroes Park is in the Allman Town neighborhood of Kingston just a mile east of Trench Town. Visitors can walk the park ground and take moments of reflection at the monuments to Jamaica’s national leaders, and to those citizens who sacrificed for their country.
