A jewel in the heart of Kingston, Emancipation Park is a refuge for many who seek solitude and a relaxing environment away from the hustle and bustle of daily life in the city. It is a lush seven-acre oasis, capturing the famous beauty of the island.
Nature lovers will enjoy Emancipation Parks tropical flowers and trees such as the majestic Royal Palm, its branches stretching outwards beckoning to the skies. Art lovers can appreciate the beautifully crafted 11- foot bronze sculpture, Redemption Song, by celebrated Jamaican artist Laura Facey, gracing the park's ceremonial entrance.
The opening of Emancipation Park in July 2002 is a significant milestone in our nation's journey. Emancipation Park was created to be a symbol of our freedom to hope, excel and be.

Freedom to hope, to excel and to be
We live in Portmore and I try to take my family here at least twice a month since we do not have a good park in our city. The park is very clean and relaxing. We just sit on the beautiful manicured grass and watch the kids play. Great job with this one.
