A walk in the park

Attention dads: this weekend it’s your turn to do the planning, organising and executing of family activities, while your spouse takes a well-earned rest.
Sunday is Mother’s Day, so the roles are reversed and mums get to sit back, relax and be spoiled.
Get in practice on Saturday and pack everyone into the car with sun hats, sunscreen and snacks and head out the Botanic Park.
There’s a family fun day and plant sale taking place on Saturday, from 9am to 3pm. It’s hosted by the Garden Club of Grand Cayman and promises to be fun for all ages.
The idea is to get kids interested in the great outdoors and the natural world. Garden Club members will help children paint and decorate natural objects like seeds and shells and a scavenger hunt will be organised and children given booklets to enhance their experience of the park.
Meanwhile, for adults there is a plant sale in the nursery, with 15 discount offered on all plants for mums. (If you forgot to buy a gift, it may not be too late …)
Kids will get to run around in the fresh air and parents can enjoy the peaceful natural surroundings. Refreshments will be provided and if you’re lucky you may just see blue iguana.
Admission to the Botanic Park will be reduced to $5 for adults and free for children under 12. The majority of proceeds will go to supporting the work of the Botanic Park and the colour garden.
