Recently, Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park, located off the West Coast of Grenada, underwent a renovation project to make the Protected Area even better for travelers to explore.

 

The sculpture park is one of National Geographic’s Top 25 Wonders of the World and was envisioned by British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor. The Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park opened in 2006 and was the first of its kind. Now it is accessible to both snorkelers and divers and has been one of the destination’s most loved attractions.

 

Travelers can explore 82 life-sized sculptures that reflect Grenada’s culture, each fashioned from a variety of media, but mainly simple substrates including concrete. The sculptures create a safe space for marine life to develop.

One of the most famous sculptures is “Vicissitudes,” a circle of 28 figures cast from local Grenadian children linked by holding hands. Other sculptures to look out for include the “Lost Correspondent,” a man working at a typewriter at a desk; “Sienna,” an elegant sculpture that depicts a young skin diver; and “TAMCC Faces,” a series of life-sized faces seemingly molded into the crevice of a large coral boulder.

 

“The Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park is a national treasure and its maintenance is important to the upkeep of the pure allure of Grenada’s waters,” said Petra Roach, CEO, Grenada Tourism Authority.

 

Recently, the park has been affected by natural environmental forces, so to preserve its beauty, some statues were repaired, cleaned and even relocated to a different spot in the park.
