Turtle River Park, Ocho Rios

Situated in the centre of Ocho Rios, Turtle River Park is a relatively new attraction. Until recent years the land (which spans over 3 hectares) was used to be a bus park until the Urban Development Corporation (UDC) slated it for redevelopment.

The UDC decided that the most beneficial use for the land would be a public park, a use befitting St Ann Parish's nickname of "The Garden Parish". Turtle River Park was opened by Prime Minister P J Patterson on 18 June 2004. The Park is frequented by tourists and members of the Ocho Rios community, seeking a moment of tranquility away from working life.

The park features flower beds, a large pond stocked with fish and turtles, gazeboes, a concert pavilion and a concession selling snacks. There is also a parking lot adjoining the park.
