The park was within easy walking distance from the cruise ships. The park was free and relatively clean. Needed to walk down Ocho Rios' main street to get there so you see the town up close. It is a good place to eat your jerk chicken.

This park is ideal for couples and family hang outs. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing and enjoyable the entire family, if you're having a rough day this is also a good place to come clear your head.

Quiet. I didn't see any turtles but the park was always clean. A nice place to relax after a long day or to go to sit and think. Admission is free.

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle this is the place. A park where you can walk around and see the pond that is full of fish and turtles. A place to relax and for some quiet time.

We just walked through here as a shortcut, but found it very clean and cool. There is security, and a snack bar, a kids play area and a pond with turtles and koi. I'd bring young kids here.

My wife and I along with our very close Jamaican friend and her son recently visited Turtle River Park for the first time. What a great looking park. It is located in downtown Ocho Rios.

Nice little park with swing sets and play area for the children. A few pavilions to hang out in and some nice big trees to sit under. Some festivals are held here such as the Ocho Rios Seafood Festival.

The grounds are well kept, the water is clean and inviting, the facilities are also modern and well kept. Restaurants are on site but there are also businesses close enough for comfort.
