Walked through a couple of times and drove round it even more. Statues abound but most impressive is the old bandstand in the middle.

King's Square is a little park with a neighboring ancient cemetery. The park only takes a few minutes to walk through, but you can sit and relax on a bench if you choose. The centerpiece is the Victorian gazebo!

King's Square is such a great place to hang out with some ice cream or local take out. There are many places to sit and eat, people watch, & enjoy the sun!

The City of Saint John has put out their wooden benches for the summer. The Uptown Saint John BIA table & chair sets are also out for the summer & have been given a bright refresh!

Arrived about 15:00 on a Sunday as part of a road trip around Nova-Scotia.
Nicely kept park but I didn’t feel safe because of the panhandlers and inebriated people mouthing it off. Probably best to go in the morning as others have said.

Beautiful park with impressive monuments and other statuary, an attractive pavilion, nice landscaping, and city views. Being the end of May, the flowers and trees were almost in full bloom. There were several lone men wandering the park but they didn't bother anyone.

Gray area to stroll the grounds. Very safe and easy walk on the cruise port. We have a new opportunities here as well and was great from historical perspective reading the statue/plaque

This park is a nice green space but the panhandlers made it impossible to just sit and enjoy a break.

A lovely historic square, but also seems to a gathering place for aimless folk smoking a lot of weed.

Nice little park in the city with interesting history. The Grandstand, which is the centre point of the park was the most interesting part for me. Lots of different Monuments and Memorials here to see. Street parking is available here too, especially in the morning.

Ended up here twice during our visit and there is a distinct difference between morning and night here, as it was getting a little sketchy at night. I could see the change occurring at dusk so best to visit here earlier in the day.

Worth a visit if you have time on your hands.

Very little (paid) parking in the area, surrounded by panhandlers and making the area look very unsafe. We didn't make it out of our car - just drove around it to have a look.
