See the monuments in this park located right in the center of downtown Kingston. Names for the 1938 labor leader William Grant, the park had previously been known as Victoria Park (for Queen Victoria of England). William Grant was an associate of National Hero and former Prime Minister Sir Alexander Bustamante. The name was changed after Jamaica won its independence. The principal monument in the park remains the one installed in honor of Queen Victoria, but there is also a statue of National Hero Norman Manley and one of Prime Minister Bustamante.
