Fodor's Expert Review Black Point Historic and Recreation Park
In 1815, under the supervision of British Colonel Thomas Browne, Carib and African slaves drilled a 360-foot tunnel through solid volcanic rock—an engineering marvel at the time—to facilitate the transportation of sugar from estates in the north to the port in Kingstown. Today, Jasper Rock Tunnel is the centerpiece of Black Point Historic and Recreation Park, which also has an interpretation center, children's playground, and washrooms. The tunnel, just off beautiful Black Point Beach between Georgetown and Colonarie (pronounced con-a-ree), links Grand Sable with Byrea Bay. The park is open daily, 8 am to 6 pm.
