Enjoyed our visit to this park. Views amazing. Walk around and check out the ruins and you may even get a chance to see some monkeys.

This park was one stop on a tour that we took (Barbados Highlights). The tour guide, Shara W, was friendly, informative, pleasant...and a great 'teacher' of some very interesting history about Barbados and Farley Hill Park. The mansion was gutted from fire in 1965 and the area was designated a park in 1966 by The Queen. The movie 'Island in... More

The park itself is rather small, but the trees are truly imposing. A large car park and a kids' recreation ground make it popular with families. There is an ancient mansion that was rebuilt to shoot a film, but unfortunately burned down subsequently. Its ruins add to the atmosphere.

This park is right across from the Wildlife Reserve, and it is virtually free to visit. Beautiful grounds, see the ruins of a mansion once used to make the "Island in the Sun" movie with Harry Bellafonte before it was destroyed by fire. Wonderful view down over the island to the sea.

I attended an event in July at Farley Hill which was packed with people, live bands, and a lot of atmosphere. It was lovely to return and walk through the woods and see it in all its glory on an ordinary day. If you are outdoor person this is one for you, it is so natural. You can lose yourself... More

The Farley Hill park advocates recycling and no littering, yet all over the park are piles of litter, old cans, and general rubbish. Such a shame, all so run down.

Very quiet and picturesque. A historic building which was burnt out can still be found nestled on the grounds. The park is the venue for this and a few other festivals held at different intervals during the year. These festivals include segments of Gospel fest and the Reggae festival.

One of the highest points (if not the highest) on the island, so naturally amazing views from here. A very peaceful place to chill. The ruined house has been taken over by nature and is kinda spooky, kinda cool.
