The Rotary Clubs of the Cayman Islands are partnering with the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park to develop the park’s Children’s Education Centre.

At a presentation ceremony at Rotary Central Cayman in Centennial Park in George Town on Saturday, June 30, the three local Rotary Clubs jointly committed $150,000 to help construct the facility.

Planning approval has been secured for the Education Centre, which is being designed pro-bono by John Doak Architecture.

The Rotary Children’s Centre will feature a classroom surrounded by endemic flora, a grand gazebo entrance, an expansive lawn area and other interactive elements that “will create indelible memories, and positive stimulation for the many children that will be passing through,” according to a press release from the Botanic Park.
