Emancipation Park (Frederiksted)
The area right in front of the Frederiksted fort and waterfront has been made into a beautiful town park. It contains statues of historically important Virgin Islanders. Small paths weave through dozens of large Mahogany trees and fragrant flowers. This pleasant Federiksted park honors the slave revolt leader General Buddhoe and also serves to recall and honor the 1848 proclamation by Governor Peter von Scholten that emancipated slaves in the Danish islands. The park has many benches and a small gazebo.
