Across the street from Jakes is a the Breds Treasure Beach Sports Park & Academy, aka a 17- acre community hub where over 1500 local kids are learning not only to play and score, but the leadership skills and teamwork that ready them for jobs and scholarships far beyond the park grounds. Built in 4 persevering phases, conceived and spearheaded by Jason Henzell, the Sports Park has transformed the community and attracted athletes and sponsors from around the world.
Guests can join throngs of spirited fans to watch cricket, football and track matches between incredible Jamaican and foreign teams , enlist in pickup basketball games and step to the court for tennis any time.
In addition, the General Colin Powell Challenge Course is an exhilarating experience that lets you climb high and stretch what you believe is possible. General Colin Powell’s parents lived just miles from the Sports Park and he is honored to have the ropes course in his name.
