Qe botanic park main

The Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park was opened by Queen Elizabeth herself in 1994 and is Cayman’s only botanical garden. The 65-acre park is dedicated to preserving local flora and fauna and is famous for its Blue Iguana Conservation Facility, which is the only place in Grand Cayman where you will find the Blue Iguana, a magnificent endangered creature.

The Botanic Park is split into several areas for you to explore by yourself or you can take a guided tour which is held on Tuesday or Thursday at 2pm. Tours last approximately 2 hours.

Heritage House & Garden
Explore a traditional Caymanian home, view artefacts, a medicinal and sand garden, a cooking Caboose and learn how early settlers lived.

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

Lake & Wetlands
Popular with birdwatchers. In cooler months the banks are a lovely spot for a picnic.

Colour Garden
A series of gardens arranged by colour, the garden is a year-round explosion of hues. Meander through the trails and end at the gazebo, a favourite for weddings and intimate brunches.

Blue Iguana Conservation Facility

The National Trust operates this wonderful programme to help increase the endangered species’ population. Self-guided tours are available in the entry price to the Botanic Park, however, guided tours must be booked in advance through the National Trust by emailing: tours@nationaltrust.org.ky.

The Children’s Garden

This interactive garden features a splash pad, observation tower, a rock climbing wall, playground, giant bird’s nests and animal sculptures, plus plenty of shaded picnic areas for parents and children to enjoy a well-earned rest.
