Published by admin on

National Heroes Park is a botanical garden in Kingston, Jamaica. The largest open space in Kingston at 20 hectares in size,[1] National Heroes Park features numerous monuments, and is the burial site of many of Jamaica’s National Heroes, Prime Ministers, and cultural leaders. On the eastern side of the National Heroes Park, you can find a monument in honour of the Nanny of the Maroons, a female slave who fought the English with guerrilla like tactics and tenacity, as well as Marcus Garvey. Garvey was actually the first Jamaican to be proclaimed National Hero, because of his efforts worldwide to give black Africans, especially those living outside Africa, pride and honour.
