About the Jamaica Giants Sculpture Park and Art Garden
Located in Moreland Hill about a half-hour drive from Skylark Negril Beach Resort, the Jamaica Giants Sculpture Park and Art Garden offers a look into the local art of our island. Explore an amazing private collection of lifesize stone sculptures set in natural gardens and more than 120 paintings housed in two galleries. Plus, its high elevation at 279 feet above sea level creates stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
The art at Jamaica Giants Sculpture Park and Art Garden is special– it fits right in with the lush, surrounding landscape. Fitzroy “Fitzy” Russell is responsible for the beautiful sculptures, and he has created about 40 sculptures from the native stone found in Moreland Hill. Bruce Allen is responsible for the paintings; most are acrylic on canvas.
