Richards Park was set up in the late 1800’s to decongest the South Parade Area. Named after Richard, a British Civil Services Officer, the park is the highest point of Richards Town. This beautiful park with a bandstand where the British listened to their favourite bands every Sunday, has been maintained in all its glory by the RTRA. The park is a visual treat with a children’s play area and a waterfall.
People from all over the area visit the park all day long to walk, jog or just take in the beauty of the surroundings. RTRA organises live band performances by the Air Force, Army and Police Bands twice a year bringing back memories of the days gone by.⊕
