New Providence and Paradise Islands Sights

Clifton Heritage Park

  • Park (National/State/Provincial)

Updated 07/12/2013

Fodor's Review

It's quite a distance from just about any hotel you could stay at, but for history and nature buffs, this national park, rescued from the hands of developers, is worth the drive. Situated on a prehistoric Lucayan Village dating back to AD 1000–1500, Clifton Heritage Park allows you to walk through the ruins of slave quarters from an 18th-century plantation. There's still much work to be done to really develop this site; call ahead to arrange a tour guide for the best experience. Be sure to walk the path from the main parking lot toward the west, where you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the Sacred Space and admire the African women carved out of dead casuarinas trees by local artist Antonius Roberts. Naturalists will enjoy walking along the paths lined with native flora and fauna that lead to wooden decks overlooking mangrove swamps.
