Emancipation Park

Emancipation Park opened in July 2002 to celebrate the journey that Jamaica has made as a nation from the dark days of slavery to today. Well manicured lawns and vibrant flora give this park a peaceful feel.

"Redemption Song," located at the ceremonial entrance of the park is an 11 foot bronze sculpture created by local artist Laura Facey.
