This is a small perfectly formed park which had more than 40 iguanas taking in the sun at the time of our visit. A neat park with lots of grass - exceedingly smart. Located near to the sea front so plenty to see and do and wander around and about at all times.

This area is good for a sit down and a wee rest after walking around seeing the sights. Peaceful and in the shade.

We were wandering around downtown Oranjestad and stumbled on this pretty but small park. Good ocean views and a nice quiet spot to reflect and relax.

This park was right next to our hotel, and we would walk thru on the way to the West Deck restaurant. Small park, but a neat statue of Anne Frank and also Wilhelmina. Young people hanging out, but all were well behaved.

Queen Wilhelmina was the longest-reigning Dutch monarch ruling the Netherlands from 1898 to 1948. There is a marble statue of the queen that was erected in 1955. There were several iguanas in the park as well. There were beautiful palm trees within the park. There is also a statue of Anne Frank. At the base are the words: How wonderful... More

Not worth going out of your way to get to for sure. If you see it while passing by it's enough. I wouldn't recommend this as a destination point.

We ate at Wilhemina for the first time this year. We were a party of 7, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food, wait staff and atmosphere.

We chose not to do an Excursion but walk around the beautiful area and town and park. The people are most friendly and we felt comfortable walking about. The park was beautiful and well maintained. Iguanas were everywhere so we spent some time photographing them. After walking to the small beach we crossed over and walked to the other side... More

Very near the intensive shopping area and its hubub, this little park makes for a gentle respite. The small statue of Queen Wilhelmina is lovely, and I loved even more the statue of Anne Frank with hopeful inscription in four languages on the four sides of the base. If you wish, you can follow the sidewalk away from this manicured... More

While you are shopping downtown, stroll by Wilhelmina Park to view one of the local tributes to Dutch colonialism. It's an average type urban setting, but while you are in Oranjestad, why not see it.
