Park
“This park is a great place to go walking, sit and people watch or stay fit and jog on the running path. It was built to honour the Emancipation of our people in 1834. The most remarkable feature at this park is an 11 ft. Bronze Sculpture built by artist Laura Facey of two naked male and female statues sitting atop a water fountain, representative of their triumph of being freed from slavery.”

Nature
“Tree top adventure attraction a 5 minute ride from no.8 Chillin. Be lifted through the rain forest on the sky explorer chairlift. Ride the bobsled or try the zip line through the tree canopy. Have a relaxing swim in the infinity pool or meal in the restaurant both offering an amazing view of Ocho Rios. There is also a tropical garden to meander around and souvenir shops Our girls (aged 7 and 11) loved this place once we had recovered from the thrill of the skylift and skimming the tops of the trees! The pool is fun and has a waterslide. ”
