The Promenade Gardens, Georgetown. Guyana.

The Promenade Gardens, Georgetown. Guyana.

The Promenade Gardens is located  in the city of Georgetown, Guyana. The gardens are located between Middle and Newmarket Streets as well as between Waterloo and Carmichael Streets in the city. It stands as the perfect spot for the family and the young at heart to relax and think of mother nature’s countless blessings to the City of Georgetown.

The sign along Middle Street tells the story of the gardens. Republic Bank has over the years partnered with the Georgetown Municpality to maintain the Promenade Gardens.

The sward at the northern end of the gardens is the perfect spot for children to run and play

Many birds can be seen in the Promenade Gardens. We spotted these two “Kisskadees” taking a morning bath at this fountain during our visit

These petals caught our eyes , as we perused the Promenade Gardens for better views

    Alva – Beautiful pictures recalling lots of warm memories. Thank you for sharing them. Would be interested in communicating more both about your pictures and the Promenade Gardens – if you are interested. Frank

    I spent many a day there when I went to Sacred Heart school in classes. When I lived in Guyana I never really thought it was a blessing as I had nothing else to compare to. Now I miss it a lot I will visit again before I say goodbye to mother earth.

    Lived not too far from the gardens on Murray Street at Camp Street and spent many, many days in the gardens as a small boy. From the pictures it appears to have deteriorated a bit as the lawns appears to be dry in spots as is the parapet. I cannot remember ever seeing dry spots on the lawns during my time, but it has been a while, quite close to fifty years. Would like to see the sights of Guyana one last time before passing but scared as hell of the violence meted out to visitors. I am doomed to live with memories.

    Thanks for sharing.Thanks for
