 A Tour of the Garden and Falls

The Gardens are dominated by the breathtaking waterfalls on the Turtle River which run south to north throughout the Gardens. For the purpose of the Tour the Garden is divided into two segments:

·         Segment One – Formal Tropical Garden

·         Segment Two – Tropical Rainforest

 

Formal Tropical Garden

The Formal Tropical Garden highlight flowering trees and shrubs, fruit trees, ferns and palms and is located on the flat central portion of the land surrounding the major buildings and facilities.

Tropical Rainforest

The Rainforest surrounds the most majestic of the waterfalls and also surrounds the upper steeper portion of the property. The many and famous viewing platforms along the river provide the perfect viewing point to appreciate the plant diversity of the rainforest. Clearly seen along the river walk are the four levels typical of a rainforest, namely, the emergent level, the canopy, the understory and the forest floor, providing fantastic educational opportunity on the world’s imperilled rainforests and what is required to preserve them.

Visit to The Aviary

The Walk-In-Aviary (382,329 cubic feet) is 140 feet in diameter and 75 feet in height and covers approximately 15,400 square feet of land space and is stocked with colourful tropical birds including some of the 27 species endemic to Jamaica. The Aviary offers a vivid interactive experience for visitors who are permitted, as additional entertainment, to interact and feed the birds.
