Napoleon was Here

Napoleon's wife had a statue erected, but when she re-instated slavery, the locals decapitated the statue.. Interesting, nothing outstanding,.

At first glance, I thought this park was underwhelming... a reasonably nice patch of green in the town square. But my kids spotted some swings near the trees and ran for them, and as we stood there in the shade watching them play, it was actually quite nice. The park is right on the harbor, a nice breeze blows off... More

Nice place to stroll near the Cruise Port. There are some restaurants and bars. The statues around the place are very interesting.

This is a very large park, with everything worth seeing in Fort de France just a few steps away. It's not a sight to see just on its own, but rather one to take in while you are seeing everything else in the city.

It's pretty much grass and 10 palm trees, no signs no nothing. Nice for a walk through FDF but nothing to come in particular.

La Savene is a relatively small green space near the fort and the harbor. On a daily basis there is not much going on. I'm sure it is densely packed during celebrations and holidays. It is notable for the beheaded statue of Napoleon's wife, Josephine, a native of the island. The statue had a head but it was severed after... More

The park was filled with thousands to see the New Year's fireworks at 8:30 p.m.. There was a stage set up with live music throughout the night. It was a great time to people watch and listen to music. The fireworks were very nice. The park is very nice and well maintained. For the New Year's Celebration, the police blocked... More

We stayed very close to this park so before and after our cruise we spent time in this park. The food in some of the stalls is good remembering it is islands and of a French flavour if you get that. If you are looking for North American look elsewhere. We ate at two of the stalls . We had... More

Park area is a bit run down and the statue of Josephine has been vandalised but the night time street food stalls are high quality but pretty expensive.

It is no doubt an asset to have a large piece of greenery in the center of a city. But little is made of this as of now. There is a row of small kiosks selling food and drinks, and there is a small tourist office as well. Nice! But the rest is just one big lawn which appears not... More
