“Lovely gardens, spot the iguana!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

A relaxing place to wander, there are a number of statues including one of Anne Frank. It is well layer out and it was fun trying to spot the huge iguanas that live on the island , they may be crawling around or climbing the trees. The park is located near the Renaissance mall where you can cool off with a nice cold drink or pancakes.

“Very touched by the Anne Frank memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

Walking around the Renaissance Hotel, we discovered this little area honouring two connections with The Netherlands: Queen Wilhelmina and Anne Frank. I was particularly touched by the message, offered in various languages, inscribed on the base of the statue. I have included a photo. A lovely place to visit.

“Beautiful views, relaxing walk, and iguanas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

My tittle says it all! This is not an "event" but it is a nice walk, in an amazing setting, right downtown adjacent to shopping, casinos, restaurants, and there are tons of giant iguanas lounging all over...very cool.

“I came here every morning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

I came here every morning to feed the Iguana's some leafy greens and fruit. I think there were probably 40+ Iguanas that lived here. It is not a very big place but it is interesting stop when you are in the city.
