St. George’s, March 5, 2009 (GIS) – Grenadians will soon have the use of a new recreational park in the Town of St. George.

A sod-turning ceremony was held Friday, March 5, to symbolize the start of work on Tri-centennial Park, located just above Sendall Tunnel leading up to Fort George.

Plans for the opening of the park are one of the projects being undertaken to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the Town of St. George.

When completed, Tri-centennial Park will include a walkway providing easier access to Fort George and other parts of the Town.

Tourism Minister Hon. Glynis Roberts said the park will improve Grenada’s tourism product.  She said it would also help maintain the Town of St. George, which the Minister described as a “prize.’’

Among others attending Friday’s ceremony were Foreign Affairs Minister Hon. Peter David, MP for the Town of St. George; and China’s Ambassador to Grenada, His Excellency Zhang Wanhai.

Mr. Michael Jessamy, Heritage Officer in the Ministry of Tourism, said the park is not just for foreigners but also for locals.

He said that the walkway should be completed by April 23, 2010.

The official sod-turning was done by Ministers Roberts and David.

The next major Tri-centennial event is on Sunday, March 14, on the Carenage. It’s a sports and cultural day that will include live entertainment, swimming, football, basketball, netball, cycling and a greasy pole.

“We invite all Grenadians, whether they live in the Town of St. George or not, to participate in the Carenage events on March 14,’’ said Hon. David.
