CUL-DE-SAC – Minister of VROMI Angel Meyers visited the Emilio Wilson Estate on Friday, May 13, to view the Rain Forest Adventures Eco Adventure Park project.

The Minister received a tour from Chief Engineer John Dalton and Project Manager John Speetjens.

The Minister was interested in seeing first-hand how the project was progressing, and ensure that the Rain Forest Adventures were in compliance with the building permits that were issued. The Minister also wanted to safeguard the fact that they were holding up to monument agreement that was put in place for the property.

Rain Forest Adventures plans to reforest the Emilio Wilson Estate and bring it back to its natural environment as much as possible. It includes preservation of the historical estate and showcasing St. Maarten’s heritage.

When the project is completed it will include a museum at the Emilio Wilson Estate, chairlifts to the top of the mountain, a zip line, tube run, and a nature trail. Not only will the public be able to learn this history, but they will also enjoy it.
