Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison

St. Ann’s Garrison, or more commonly known as “The Garrison”, is a small district located in the country of Barbados. This Garrison Historic Area is situated about 2 miles south of Heroes Square in the capital-city Bridgetown, and just west of the village of Hastings in the neighbouring parish of Christ Church. It is dominated by its historic horse race-track, located on the 30 acre parade ground called the Garrison Savannah. The Garrison area additionally contains many historic buildings including barracks for military personnel. The district is bisected by Highway 7, with Saint Ann’s Fort, where the Barbados Defence Force (BDF) is based, lying to the west.
