Mainstay Lake is a lake northwest of the mouth of the Essequibo River, 19 km north of Adventure. There is a half-mile stretch of white sand at the edge of the lake. A resort has been built next to the lake, a forty-five-minute journey by car inland from Anna Regina, or through the resort on a twenty-minute flight from Georgetown to the resort’s airstrip. Mainstay Lake hosts an annual regatta.

The Cheddi Jagan Bio Diversity Park was established in 2001 in memory of patriot and national hero Dr. Cheddi Jagan by Isahak Basir CCH. It is located on a historical site created by slaves in the period of the 18th century and also a symbol of action that lead to the final closure of Hampton Court Estate in 1943, being the last of the 34 sugar mills in Essequibo.
