Did you know that the park located to the north-east of Castries know as George the Fifth Park was originally known as the Botanical Gardens?  From 1886 to 1913 it was the principal agricultural Station in St. Lucia.  It was renamed after the death of King George the Fifth.

Did you know the estate between Terre Blanche and Fond Doux, in the Soufriѐre district known as Rabot was the scene of fierce fighting between British and Revolutionary forces in 1795?

Did you know there are two places in St. Lucia called Ti Rocher (Little Rock)?  Ti is an altered form of Petit, one Ti Rocher is in the heights of east Castries and the other is near Micoud.

Did you know there is Rat Island in St. Lucia and in Antigua?

  1. George V Park is a man-made disaster. A beautiful park that was allowed to go to the crapper. Now, it's the place for dumping oil after an oil change. Sad.
