Experiencing the St. Kitts Eco-Park (SKEP) is bound to awaken or improve one appreciation for inexperienced energy. Situated on the northwest side on the island, near the city of Sandy Point, the park sits in a perfection location. The views each inside and beyond the grounds present Nature at its best.

The venture is the mixed effort of Taiwan in East Asia and St. Kitts-Nevis within the East Caribbean. ๅ‡กe have witnessed great progress in our bilateral relations stated the Taiwan Minister of Foreign Affairs in 2013, specially with all of the cooperation projects . . . which have already been very successful in promoting the ties of friendship and co-operation between the two countries.

The main attraction on the park grounds is the multifunctional greenhouse (more than 78 ft. tall, more than 14,000 sq. ft.) which is the largest within the Caribbean.Four

The greenhouse is comprised of 1,600 items of glass5 and sports the flags of each countries at the entrance. Inside, various flowers and fruit bushes are cultivated for display and for sale.

In addition to the greenhouse, there are a few other buildings on the St. Kitts Eco- Park compound.

The retailers are connected, symbolizing the bond between the international locations they characterize. There are also two visitor centers and a tea shop.

Inexperienced Buildings
All the buildings are constructed with GFRC6 (glass-fiber reinforced concrete) which is 3 instances lighter and 5 times tougher than normal concrete. The strength is derived from high contents of alkali resistant glass fibers and acrylic polymer; and the polymer makes the concrete versatile and resistant to cracking.

GFRC is taken into account a inexperienced material as a result of it is comprised of pure products like sand and stone which have no dangerous results on the atmosphere. The glass elements are from recycled supplies and the fly ash in the cement is from the waste produced by industrial smokestacks. The usage of GFRC not only makes the St. Kitts Eco-Park eco-pleasant, but additionally gives it a gorgeous and trendy look.

Tropical fruits take up the most area within the abundant display, however there are also exotic plants, a local medicinal herb garden, a rose backyard, a desert backyard and floral maps of St. Kitts and Taiwan.
