Woodford Square

Situated in the heart of the city, Woodford Square is renowned as a place of political and religious gatherings, entertainment, discussions and craft markets. Formerly known as Brunswick Square, it was renamed after Governor Sir Ralph Woodford, who was responsible for rebuilding the square and much of the city after the 1808 fire. During the independence movement of the 1960s, the square was dubbed “The University of Woodford Square” by Dr. Eric Williams, leader of the People’s National Movement political party and became a place of many political gatherings.
