Quite close to the jade museum, this small square does have a cool fountain and some interesting statuary, but otherwise isn't particularly noteworthy. It could be just a nice spot to sit and cool off on a hot day.

There are a few nice statues in the park as well as a WORKING fountain. One of the few we have seen around the Caribbean. People watching is good at times and there is a really neat mosaic on the sides of the traffic tunnel next to the park
