The Heritage Garden is intended to showcase the plants that played an important role in Cayman’s history.  The displays include grounds, or areas where root crops and vegetables would be cultivated; the economically important Silver Thatch Palm / Coccothrinax proctorii; and the medicinal garden with the types of plants Caymanians used to treat various ailments. In the heritage vein, an old Caymanian house, circa 1900, owned by Julius Rankine from East End, Grand Cayman, was brought to the Park and restored, and a sand garden was developed around the house showing the traditional ornamental plants of that setting.  There is also a collection of the traditional fruit trees.
