- Independence Park is the Mecca for Jamaica's sporting and cultural activities. You'll know you're there when you notice Bob Marley's statue just before turning into the park from Arthur Wint Drive. This is our National Stadium, the island's premier sports center where 36,000 spectators witnessed the qualification of the national football team for the 1998 World Cup. It is where the hoisting of the black, green and gold flag of Jamaica took place on August 6, 1962. A statue of Olympic gold medallist, Donald Quarrie, stands just outside the stadium.
