Renovation of Smith Cove continued
last week when workers relocated six large boulders on the beach on Thursday.
The Recreation, Parks and
Cemeteries Unit moved the boulders to the centre area of the beach, the
official name of which is Smith Barcadere.
“This allowed for beautification
and safety improvement to the sand area next to the cove. Old tree stumps were
removed as well,” according to a statement released by Government Information
Services in response to queries from the Caymanian Compass.
“The removal is long overdue, as
the boulders were moved around by Hurricane Ivan and later buried under the
sand, posing a hazard to persons over the years,” the statement continued.
In March, the unit placed boulders
nearer the road to prevent cars parking on the beach and on the roadside beside
the beach. A car park to serve the popular public beach is situated across the
The unit also planted indigenous
sea grape and coconut trees at the site and replenished the area with white
sand from Seven Mile Beach in March.
