The Soufrière Regional Development Foundation is a non-profit organisation. Established by the people of Soufrière, we promote, encourage, support, facilitate and coordinate local development initiatives in the Soufrière region.
We are responsible for and manage various national sites such as Gros Piton Nature Trail, Soufrière Beach Park and The Soufrière Jetties. Also listed among the spots we manage is Sulphur Springs Park.
Situated some 42 km along a steep, ribbon-shaped road from the capital Castries and approximately
2.4 km southeast of the picturesque town of Soufrière, is a geologic marvel and St. Lucia's most famous and premier visitor attraction, Sulphur Springs Park.
Advertised worldwide as home to the world's only drive-in volcano, Soufrière welcomes annually over 200,000 patrons. Visitors clamour for the opportunity to drive and walk right into the heart of a dormant volcano.
The volcano's 46 hectares spread majestically between two hills centrally located within St. Lucia's Piton World Heritage Site. The site was accorded this status by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for its outstanding beauty and because it's a unique phenomenon. In entirety, the 2,909-hectare area includes the world-famous pitons, Gros and Petit Piton.
The area is a stark reminder of the volcanic origin of the island. However, its present tranquillity and captivating beauty belies the fact the forces that shaped it are still very much alive.
The Sulphur Springs Park and our other sites are worth the visit.
