Envisioning the Barkers peninsula

According to the Department of Environment (DOE), approximately 4,111 acres of land across the Cayman Islands are now designated as public protected areas under the National Conservation Law. The protected land includes acreage in the Barkers peninsula, an area slated by the Cayman Islands Government in the late 1990s for the creation of a National Park.

The status of the proposed park has received renewed attention in the local media following the announcement that Calico Jack’s Bar & Grill will be moving to two parcels of land owned by Dart in the area. The parcels in question are located outside of the proposed National Park and are currently zoned for Hotel/Tourism.
