Please click the link below to view the collection of the unsightly garbage, and solid waste, as well as recyclable items.  We have organised for the collection of the sofa and other items by the Cayman Islands' Department of Environmental Health.  It is so sad as the dumped items are so close to the Barkers' sign and in and around the mangroves in the dykes where tourists and residents visit to enjoy the beautiful scenery. The dumped items are also a threat to our environment.  The DEH explained that the sofa had been dumped within the last two weeks - so close to Earth Day!  What must our tourists think? While we were at Barkers some tourists drove through asking about the Park. They past the dumped items, and turned round and left!
