“Nice Break”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

It is central Ocho. Nice and clean, quiet, free admission. Nice break from the hustle and bustle of the town.

“Pretty but pretty rundown”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We were the only ones in the park.. This is under new ownership, and they look like they are trying to clean up the place. The guide was good. The 6 waterfalls were beautiful, and we really loved feeding the birds in the Aviary!

“Clean and safe”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

I took my 2 children there on a Sunday morning (they open at 8am) and they had a blast. It's a shame we can't play ball in there, but I understand their reasoning behind it. The place would probably become a soccer field otherwise. There are some shady areas - a must in Jamaica - and the workers are sweet. Will definitely go back.

“Find another activity”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

I had seen this listed online and wanted to check it out. Our taxi driver told us not to bother, that it wasn't worth it. However, I insisted (I should have listened to the taxi driver). There wasn't anything to do or see here. Just a park with a pond and some turtles; however, across the street is a great place to get jerk chicken (not the kind you get at your hotel, either).
