The site previously brought in as much as 30,000 visitors annually.

Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy commended the Barbados National Trust (BNT) on spearheading the initiative, noting, “The work you’ve done today and the work you’ve planned would take into consideration facilities that are sensitive to the needs of those persons who are physically challenged.”
