Queen Elizabeth Park (formerly Par-la-ville Park)
Easily recognized as Hamilton’s, and indeed Bermuda’s, premier public park, Queen Elizabeth Park contains a myriad assortment of floral displays as well as native and exotic trees. The serenity of a linked pair of pools stocked with jewel-like koi and goldfish can be enjoyed by all.
The park is wheelchair accessible and also affords entrance to the Bermuda National Library, the Bermuda Historical Society Museum, a historic property functioning as a full service post office and to a popular café.
The City of Hamilton partnered with the Bermuda National Gallery to develop an innovative display of public art, by creating The John H. Young and Hilda Young Sculpture Garden, inaugurated in March 2007. It contains several pieces of statuary and sculptures, displayed in what has been called a “museum without walls”. Queen Elizabeth Park is open every day of the year from 7:30a.m. until sunset.
