Smith Cove gets facelift

Government’s Recreation, Parks and
Cemetery Unit are finished beautifying Smith Barcadere beach.

Parking for the beach is across the
street in the parking lot to the right, states Recreation, Parks and Cemetery
Unit General Manager Jonathan Jackson.

Since Monday, crews have been
removing cars from the beach, replenishing the area with white sand from Seven
Mile Beach and planting indigenous sea grape and coconut trees to make the area
more aesthetically pleasing.

Smith Barcadere also known as Smith
Cove is off South Church Street.

 “It is one of Caymans most popular beaches and
it was in desperate need of enhancement,” said Mr. Jackson.

“We have expanded the beach and no
more cars will be allowed to park alongside the road in front of the beach

According to Mr. Jackson, the
National Roads Authority will install a pedestrian crossing from the car park
to the beach, as well as no parking stripes alongside the road to deter
motorists from parking along that stretch of road. The Public Works Department
will be constructing a small handicap ramp in the parking area.

The cleanup crew began the work on
Monday and completed the job on Thursday.
