This hidden gem was directly across the street from the Sand Castle complex were stayed. There is no charge to walk through the park. It is located in a bustling part of Och Rios, but once inside the park it was very quiet and tranquil. There are pathways to follow, and yes lots of turtles and fish in and around... More

Beautiful place, far from the madding crowd, a jewel to be protected. Beats Dunn River Falls hands down! Aviary is fabulous and the turtles can be spotted there.

Right in the busy town of Ocho Rios you can stop for some "quite time" that is some time with yourself or anyone you may be with. It is free to enter, small fee if you need to park (under US $2 gives over an hour of park time). Little play area for children. Nice space to jog or walk... More

It;s a small park but well kept and a place to go to just kick back and relax. There is a playground for kids and a pond with turtles and koi fish. And it's free.

We had a wonderful time learning about turtles, seeing different kinds of turtles, and holding them. It was excellent!

Hands down, this was THE BEST thing we did on our trip to Ocho Rios. We had heard about this place via Trip Advisor, but when asking the staff at our resort about it no one had even heard of it (if asking about how to get here, ask about the old "Enchanted Gardens" resort). We took a taxi here... More

The park is nice... but I liked the layout they had a few years ago better... now its rather plain... there needs to be more ponds with more wildlife...
