The park is situated on the outskirts of Gros Islet town and is a place of historical value for St. Lucia as this was where many colonial battles took place between the British and the French over the island. Also this was the hideout spot where the legendary buccaneer called Francios Le Clerc took charge of ships passing by. However, Pigeon Island Park now stands as an extraordinary place on the island where you can attend exciting events, such as the thrilling St. Lucia Jazz Festival.
