The park is located in New Kingston and is themed “Tribute to Freedom” with a pair of 11 feet bronze statue, titled “Redemption Song”. It depicts a black man and woman looking towards the sky and is located at the south east entrance of the park. Embedded in the statue’s symbolic meaning is the triumph over the tragedies of slavery. West African spiritual symbols can be seen throughout the design of the park and the colorful tropical plants and flowers make for a relaxing day. It’s a symbol of hope and freedom to the Jamaican people.
