In the land donated for the BotanicPark there was a natural wetland
area, part of a
Buttonwood / Conocarpus erectus swamp.
This was developed into a small lake to serve as
a habitat for aquatic birds and for its scenic value adjoining
the Floral Colour Garden.
is about three acres in size, and, with no rivers in Cayman to
replenish it, it varies in size from
filling up in the rainy season to being almost dry at other times.
As more and more wetlands
are lost to development, the lake's importance as a wildlife refuge
is growing. For animal
lovers and bird watchers, it is a popular location for photographs.
