This small city park commemorates the 1848 emancipation of this former Danish colony's slaves, which actually happened in St. Croix. The park features a gazebo, where you will often hear lunchtime concerts, and where the government holds events. Note the bust of Danish King Christian V and a scaled-down replica of Philadelphia's famous Liberty Bell. A Vendor's Plaza is set up on the south side of the park, where you will find drinks, eats, t-shirts, and trinkets for sale. There is no admission charge.
