Once a sugar cane plantation, and then an orange grove, Shaw Park now serves as a botanical garden.
Shaw Park Botanical Gardens spans 25 acres and is set on a hill overlooking Ocho Rios and the Caribbean Sea.
Guests who visit Shaw Park Botnical Gardens are treated to a tour of the garden with a knowledgeable guide who can tell you all about the different flowers, trees, and other plants throughout. The garden features a huge variety of flora and fauna, including ferns, palms, and bougainvilleas. Of course, one of the main draws to this particular garden is the on site waterfall that crashes down into a pool that next to which is often used for picnics.
