Farley Hill National Park is situated 900 feet above sea level in approximately 17 acres. Due to the high altitude and its extensive tree cover, the park is cool even during the hot summer months. Unique features of the park include lush vegetation, cool & shady surroundings, the majestic ruins of Farley Hill Great House and opportunities for excellent photographs. Queen's Park National Park is located in the capital city of Bridgetown. The main house in Queen's Park, constructed in 1783, was originally King's House and was the residence of the Commanding Officer of the British Troops in the West Indies. Be sure to look out for one of the largest trees in Barbados, a baobab tree that is over a thousand years old and approximately 61 1/2 feet (18 m) in circumference!
