Forres Park Jamaica Blue Mountain Resort - Abbey Green

Forres Park strives to be eco friendly using very few pesticides and cultivating plants that attract and feed birds. A re-foresting program has been established to support the area due to the damage caused by the mountain fires in 2015. Trees are being planted to encourage and feed birds as well as to produce lumber.

Forres Park is a large rainwater catchment area for water preservation which is used for fish, to water plants on the farm and also for use in the hotel. This eco-friendly environment encourages birdlife, which is why the majority of Jamaica’s endemic birds can be found at Forres Park Jamaica and their Jamaica bird watching tours.
