We’ve expanded on more food and flower production. The restaurant with upper and lower outdoor deck is about 85 percent complete and a children’s recreational area with swings, monkey bard and slides will also be located closeby. We are in the very early stages of constructing exhibits that deliver upclose, immersive experiences for our guests. That is, space has been cleared for an enclosed butterfly sanctuary, a see through fibreglass fish tank and other animal enclosures for feeding and petting will follow shortly.”
Minister Grant said plans are also in place to ensure visitors are made aware of what is taking place in the federation.
Tours will be designed to tell our stories of food security, self sufficiency and resilience, long before they were buzz words. The designs for the replica 3D sugar cane field exhibits are close to completion. The layout for eight to ten retail outlets for the sale of arts and crafts and services such as photography and videography is also being finalised.”
Minister Grant noted that the St. Kitts Eco Park is a tangible expression of the generosity of the government and people of the republic of china Taiwan and the two nations’ enduring friendship, mutual commitment and support.
