As the billing had anticipated it would have been an event that would have attracted hundreds to the newly completed park. More than hundreds however, thousands of Belizeans flocked to the new facilities to enjoy time with friends family and loved ones as well as to soak in the newest recreational complex in Belize City.

The day’s event started with a children's section where they were entertained by the favorite cartoon characters brought to life on stage. Everyone was there like Spongebob, Mickey Mouse, Dora, Diego and many others. These characters entertained the young ones while adults either walked around checking out the mechanical rides, the food kiosks and other forms of entertainment in the park.

By 10 at night it was time to entertain the adults, and was it entertaining! A host of Belizean artists and DJ's made their way to the stage and rocked it until it was time for the main event- Dwayne Stephenson. He was in top form and by the time he sang his number one hit "August Town" the crowd was well with his performance, singing each verse, fully engaged and enjoying the moment.

All in all it was a memorable day and testament to the great work and effort put in by the Belize City Council and Mayor Darrell Bradley for a better Belize City, a city where entertainment and clean fun is the order of the day and public spaces are of such quality that they are magnetic in nature.
Kudos to the Mayor for his foresight and ability to deliver where others have fallen short.
