Next to the ocean and resorts in downtown Oranjestad. A beautiful park. My favorite statue was of Anne Frank.

Basically just a patch of grass with couple of walkways that really do not go anywhere and a statue. Sure, you could have a picnic here but it's so small it might feel a bit awkward. And besides, you are at Aruba so why not to have it on the beach? I actually thought this was part of the resort... More

Cut grass and a few statues I feel like I missed something.. nothing much to see, looked more like it was the front lawn to one of the hotels there.

This is a nice area to walk around in if you are staying downtown... There really isn't anything special about it except for statues and other historical pieces. To is worth visiting if you are in the downtown area.

Nice area in Oranjestad to walk around and get a sense of the area. Saw numerous birds and iguana out sunning themselves. Numerous places to stop and relax with a drink and or light or complete meal.

Wilhelmina Park is on our time share property. If you was a grassy area on a very dry island this is for you. The local people come during the day and evening. But it is not disturbing to the people at the hotel or timeshare

We stopped by the park to visit a few venues we frequent. The Aruban Government has done a great job of improving many areas on the island.

This is a must for cruisers into Oranjestad--it's a short walk from the cruise terminal and lovely oasis in the center of a busy town. Queen Wilhemina's likeness beckons, and as you near, you may pass families picnicking in the grass, iguanas munching on lettuce fed by the park's staff and foliage that reminds you you're in the Caribbean.
