I like the fact there is such a spot in the city, however I noticed the following: Swing seats were FILTHY My niece, nephew and kids were on the swings and once they hopped off their shorts/shirts were covered in a thick layer of dirt from the swings. Snack shop had nothing but dry goods In the past I've purchased... More

Turtle river park is a nice park for a walk. We did not find it amazing or out of the ordinary. Just a nice park with ponds, flowers, benches, and of course some turtles.

We especially loved all the waterfalls at Turtle River Fall and Gardens. So many to see and enjoy! And so refreshing to sit by and enjoy. Beautiful!!! The grounds are being updated and maintained fairly well. There is a pool that kids really enjoy swimming in. There is an aviary with several birds and "Scottie" who we enjoyed interacting with.

On a way to Jerk City it's nice to take a walk through this nice park which offers good shade in the day time.

I recommend a day at the Turtle waterfalls. It’s located in Ocho Rios right before the main street. $20 per person to enter. It’s quiet and you can roam the grounds, visit the birds and walk up the waterfalls w/o the Dunn’s River crowds!! We spent the whole day there enjoying the gardens, lily pond and walking up the waterfalls.... More

It was a much need break from the shops and constant approach from vendors. Very pretty. I wouldn't travel just to see it, but if you are going into town to shop, know where it is :-)

This is a beautiful and well-tended park, has restrooms on-site, as well as a playground for the youngsters. The gardens offer a tranquil oasis of beauty in an otherwise hectic and run-down area. We spent several hours wandering the trails in the park, enjoying the diverse flora, countless butterflies, birds and dragonflies. There are ample shaded areas with benches to... More

The grounds are beautifully manicured. Plants are in full bloom and colorful....peaceful and a nice, intimate hangout spot....for cuddling, talking or eating. Picturesque!
