Overview

45 Minutes from Negril Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park welcomes you to experience the ambiance and serenity of Nature. Abeokuta is a Heritage, Health and Eco-Tourist Attraction located in Dean's Valley Westmoreland. The Park was officially opened on January 5th, 2003 by the Nigerian High Commissioner, Her Excellency Florentina Ukonga. Abeokuta is a beautiful unspoiled natural Jamaican Attraction that has been a breathtaking and rejuvenating experience for guests locally and internationally. There is nothing like Abeokuta on the entire island and the closest place to this is Abeokuta in Nigeria, Africa to which Abeokuta, Jamaica is directly linked for over three hundred years. This occurred when the first slaves that were taken to the Parish of Westmoreland were brought to this Plantation from Abeokuta, Nigeria.The Park itself occupies 13 acres of land on a hill that was the original Plantation Yard. The remains of the Great House still stand magnificently fashioned from pure cut 2' thick stone. On the property is the oldest swimming pool in Jamaica which goes back three hundred years, with near Olympic dimensions being 71ft long and 47ft wide ranging from 4 to 10 feet in depth. There is a rope swing too!Mineral Water is supplied to this historic pool and a "Kiddie Pool" via an aqueduct 1/4 mile long. Beginning at the riverhead, water flows constantly and ends in two separate waterfalls. The therapeutic value of the Mineral Water has been highly touted in the relief of Arthritis as well as muscle or bone problems due to the concentration of Iron, Calcium, Chloride, Magnesium and several other natural minerals.The view from Abeokuta Paradisee Nature Park is quite spectacular and breathtaking due to the "bird's eye" altitude encompassing the distant ocean, spreading fields of sugar cane and enormous "paw-paw" fields that appear as a carpet of grass. There is the "Olumo Rock" which you can see on the Nature Tour. This rock is found in one other place in the world, Abeokuta, Nigeria, Africa! Abeokuta is a crime-free community with no hassles and the beautifully kept grounds are Harmonious and Tranquil with flowers and fruit trees all around.Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park is just off the B8 Main Highway between Ferris Cross and Montego Bay just a few miles from Ferris Cross. We can arrange reliable and safe drivers to collect you from whereever you are and return you safely. We can cater to all requirements, from private parties, weddings, marriage blessings, special moments, Reiki, massages, crochet lessons, BBQ's, Bar's, picnics, chillout and swimming. All is welcome.

Once you get up the steep hillside you are greeted by a beautiful park setting. There is a shallow wading pool and a deeper one. The views are amazing and panoramic. The setting is very relaxing.

We use a driver with a nice van named Delroy also known as Sagitarious. If you call Annie at Abeokuta she will set up by our ride for you. Tell her to hook you up with Barry and Marlene's driver .
