A beautiful park within easy walking distance of the cruise ship dock. We enjoyed a relaxing rest in the shade while we people watched. Playground equipment for kids to play on. Monuments and statues throughout the park.

Beautiful space with lots of statues and peaceful places to hang out. Lots of food places surrounding the area, perfect for family days out.

La Savane is a large park located not far from the cruise port on the Fort-de-France Bay in Martinique. Historically, this park was used to experiment with plants new to the island.

This is an open, green space next to the sea and Fort St Louis. There are some interesting trees, a good place for a stroll or a picnic. Children can play on the grass, adults also! Sometimes, one can spot wild iguanas and orange-winged parrots....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.
