In November 2016 the Bartica town council had taken the initiative to develop the West Indian Housing Scheme Green Park with funding from the government. The once swampy area where the park is now located is equipped with a water fountain which provides a sense of tranquility. The park has become a very attractive center piece for residents to relax and indulge in recreational activities. It is powered by solar energy, with solar lights and solar panels in place. This park is one of the first Green Projects of the First Town Council.
