Had a walk round the park but it was nothing special, grass was wet due to the amount of rain that had previously fallen. A few cafes on and close to the park for refreshments/snacks. It’s close to the sea front and a play park.

La Savane is a large park located not far from the cruise port on the Fort-de-France Bay in Martinique. Historically, this park was used to experiment with plants new to the island.
