Parks Department plans Camden outbuilding renovation

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

New staff facilities could be installed at the Botanical Gardens, according to a recent planning application.

The application, made on behalf of the Department of Public Lands and Buildings, proposes internal renovations to a building next to the historic Camden House to add a staff kitchen, break room and restroom facilities.

The renovations would also include the replacement of the wooden stairs to improve access to the facilities.

Planning documents state that the building is considered part of the “collection of buildings” that make up Camden and is considered a Grade 1- listed building.

Camden House was built in around 1714 and was surrounded by ancillary buildings including a carriage house, stables and an arrowroot factory, which later became home to the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art.

The property was sold to the Bermuda Government in 1966 and later became the official residence of the premier – although no premier has actually lived in the property.
