|| 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
Floral Colour Garden.
The lake 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
the lake's importance as a wildlife refuge is growing. For
animal lovers and bird watchers,
it is a popular location for photographs.
