Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited it a few days ago. Apparently, the name is always confused. We were told is it called the Enchanted Garden. Whatever the name, do visit. Lots of waterfalls, birds, amazing trees, plants, flowers and son on.

This hidden gem was directly across the street from the Sand Castle complex were stayed. There is no charge to walk through the park. It is located in a bustling part of Och Rios, but once inside the park it was very quiet and tranquil. There are pathways to follow, and yes lots of turtles and fish in and around the various ponds. There is a small hut that sells cold beverages and washrooms located at one end of the park. There are lots of benches and some picnic tables throughout the park. It seems to be a popular spot with locals. I saw lots of people enjoying their lunch or just sitting quietly enjoying the day. Not once were we approached by a hustler trying to sell us something while in the park. There are no attractions or rides for kids, it's just a park, and a very nice park.

We were in downtown Ocho Rios and made the mistake of telling the driver give us an hour. Small park but pretty would have had plenty of time if we stayed half hour. Humming birds and othe wildlife was very nice to watch. Marva came up to us shortly after we got there and stayed with us. We would have prefered to be alone to enjoy the park but was polite and let her stay with us and talked to her. She was wearing the shirt from the park so figured she was harmless. At the end she said could we tip her she was so thirsty and hungry from talking to us. Could not believe she was a worker and expected a tip for NOT leaving us alone. I would have tipped her TO leave us alone!

Says they are open online and on TripAdvisor but when we got there the gate was locked. I tried calling as it said they should be open online. An employee in a turtle river park shirt came up to let us know the park is closed until September 2021. Just think everyone should know as I still see tours being offered online. Totally understand the place being closed due to covid but the hours online and tours are very misleading.

Simply stunning park walking distance from downtown Ocho Rios. There is a car park with reasonable hourly fees or an option of all day parking too. The park also has security officers patrolling so is very safe and secure.
The park is well kept and has a play area for children. There is a refreshment kiosk and is a nice play to sit and have lunch or just take in the beautiful scenery. Well worth a visit. Suitable for all.

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. You can visit the bird sanctuary and feed the birds who will fly around you and land on you too! The property also has a nice big pool you can use. You are allowed to bring food/ drink in as they do not offer any on site. The property does need a lot of work though. They have what used to be a hotel and a restaurant which is in total ruins now. If I had a few million dollars I would totally buy the place and fix it up.

We loved this park as we saw different plants and birds and could sit and relax when we got tired. There was also a stream running through the gardens and w saw little fishes swimming in it.

This is a quaint park with turtle and fish "ponds", nice floral landscaping and gazebos for sitting. The park was pretty busy with people on the day I visited. Gazebos were all occupied, and much of the other seating was occupied as well. Despite that, I was able to enjoy the park for what it had to offer. This seems to be the "hangout" for relaxing, especially after work or while awaiting your transportation.

There is no admission cost for the park however there is a fee for parking. Free/off site parking is available nearby.
