Use of the Royal Botanic Gardens and Wildflower Park
The Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries has noted the comments made in a recent social media post on the use of the Wildflower Park which is under the remit of the Horticultural Services Division. The Ministry is in the process of conducting an internal investigation on the alleged claims.
The policy position of the Ministry for persons wishing to use the Wildflower Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens for any passive recreational activities, for example large group gatherings or photo-shoots, is that they must first obtain written permission from the Horticultural Services Division prior to their scheduled date of the event.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries (MALF) continues to encourage persons to adhere to the advertised guidelines, strategically placed at both the Royal Botanic Gardens and Wildflower Park in accordance with the Botanic Gardens Act, Chapter 41:03.
The MALF has always worked closely on a professional level with stakeholders from both the public/private sector and therefore has no sole allegiance to any particular interest group/s.
Both the Wildflower Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens remain accessible to the national community at all times, with persons generally conducting themselves in a responsible manner and complying with the regulations for its use.
