“A Pleasent Oasis”
Reviewed May 7, 2009

This was our first time at Shaw Park Gardens. Originally this was the gardens for a grand hotel. On the road up you have a beautiful view of Ocho Rios. Our guide was one of the gardeners; he was very knowledgeable about all the plants. I would recommend going to these gardens at least once. There are too many plants to mention them all. There is a natural waterfall and very old and large banyan tree and for the first time, we spotted a Doctor bird. Well worth the $ 10.00 USD entry fee, please make sure to tip the guide at the end of the tour.

“Our Wedding at Shaw Park gardens”
Reviewed September 13, 2004

We had Carnival Cruise line plan our wedding there. It is simply gorgeous. The waterfall and the path down beside it...our wedding pix look fake because its so gorgeous. There was a lovely little gazebo there for the license signing and cake cutting.

I walked around and said to myself, "This is the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen...and its mine."

“Shaw Park Garden a nature Lovers Oasis”
Reviewed August 26, 2004

in kingston there are not a lot of "green" areas so to speak, so travelling over to the Garden parish i didn't really expect to find anything out of the ordinary little garden, i was pleasantly surprised. Shaw park gardens is a must visit: it is a large, lushly appointed garden with greenery everywhere that is both unusual for even Jamaica. this is as some plants can only be viewed at certain locales high up in the blue mountains (or so i thought). they have this really nice waterfall running on the property. this is alongside little ponds and small streams. there are lots of steps going up and down over the entire property and little enclaves off these walkways were intimate thoughts will spring to mind. food is also provide on the grounds for thos who didn't bring their own picnic. there's nothing left to say except go and experience for yourself.
