The park opened in 1994, in partnership with the National Trust for the Cayman Islands, to preserve and promote local flora, fauna, and wildlife. It is home to the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme and is the only place in the world where you can see these magnificent creatures.

The Botanic Park is split into several areas for you to explore. Here are just a few highlights:

The Heritage Garden showcases the plants and trees that supported early Caymanian settlers. There is a medicinal and sand garden, an old Caymanian house, and a cooking caboose.

The Woodland Trail is just under a mile long and takes you through natural landscape that is home to 40 percent of Grand Cayman’s native flora.

The Lake and Wetlands area is popular with birdwatchers. In the cooler months the banks are a lovely spot for a picnic.

The Blue Iguana Recovery Programme is run by the National Trust and is located inside the Botanic Park. You can take a separate tour with the National Trust for an intimate experience with these fascinating creatures.
