Once a horse-race center and area for celebrating events like the Diamond Jubilee of Britain’s Queen Victoria in 1897, the location now boasts National Heroes Park. Officially designated as a park in 1973, it is the permanent venue for honoring Jamaica’s national heroes with monuments in the area known as The Shrine. Also features a botanical garden and the burial sites of many of Jamaica’s Prime Ministers. Norman Manley and Marcus Garvey are honored here. The park also functions as a venue for concerns and other events year-round.
