The Freshwater Adventure Group was formed on August 28, 2009 and began its activities in September 2009. Registration is in process and there are currently eight members.
The main activities of the group are managing the Freshwater Lake Facility, which includes a restaurant and an Interpretation Centre, and continuing the development of activities in the area such as kayaking, hiking, bird-watching and garden tours.
The village of Laudat, where the Freshwater Adventure Group is located, has a long history of being a “rest-stop” for travellers crossing the island from east to west. Laudat was a stopping point on the original Carib Route (then called the Neg Maroon Route) and later became a central point of the East to the West Route (Chemin Letang or “road to the lake”).
The Freshwater Lake is also on the border of Dominica’s UNESCO World Heritage Site which is well-known for many natural attractions such as the Boiling Lake, Freshwater Lake, Boeri Lake, and Titou Gorge.
