Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park A visitor’s first stop would be at the Visitors’ Centre which provides information about this 65 acre park and includes a gift shop, cafe, reception area and administrative offices. On the grounds of the park is a restored Caymanian farm house with its original furnishings, cook room, cistern, out buildings, fences and dry walls built of old coral. A Floral Colour Garden provides a kaleidoscope of colour beside the two- acre lake which is the home of native aquatic birds such as the West Indian Whistling Duck. Also featured at the park is the Cayman Blue Iguana Captive Breeding and Reintroduction Facility. Photo Credit: Cayman Islands Department of Tourism.
