May 12, 2017

The Botanical Garden’s action group, Take Back Our Park have “expressed concern over Government’s recent announcement an amended Parks Act will be presented at next Parliamentary session.”

Take Back Our Park spokesperson, Jennifer Flood stated, “While we are relieved to hear that after years of being limbo Southlands will finally be granted protected status under the Parks Act, we are concerned that the public is in the dark as to other proposed changes planned to the Bermuda National Parks Act 1986.

“The Act is the key piece of legislation that protects all aspects of our parks, beaches as well as many other of our national treasures.

“We sincerely hope that prior to this important piece of legislation being brought to the House for debate, Government will reach out to the various environmental groups for input and appropriate feedback.”
