“Quiet park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

This is a quiet park not far from the centre of Ocho Rios. Entry is free and there are some fish and turtles that are fun to watch. The gardens are nicely maintained and It's a place where you can sit and relax without being bothered by vendors and also feel safe. There's not a great deal to do there but that's part of the charm.

“Get away from the hustle and bustle of Ochi for a while!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Turtle River Park is worth a visit to chill out for a while, away from all the trappings of Ochi Town. There are plenty of places to sit and chill out and it is popular with the locals. The park is very clean and well designed and has gazebos, walkways, water features, children's play area and ponds with fish and turtles to enjoy. The restrooms are very clean, there is a carpark, shop and friendly security, with a strict no vending policy if you want peace and quiet.

You can hire the park for events such as weddings and stage shows. Ninja Man (music artist) had his birthday stage show here which I attended which was a must see!

“Great for Wedding Pictures”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We took our wedding pictures at this park, and it was awesome. They reserved the entire park for us that day.

This is a picturesque garden, and the staff keeps it clean and nice. It's also a nice park to just stroll along or relax.
