Tuesday, May 13, 2003 - One of St. Lucia’s principal tourist attractions, the Sulphur Springs, has been receiving a multi million dollar facelift, under an EC $ 4.5 million Sulphur Springs Enhancement Project. The project is jointly sponsored by the governments of St .Lucia and Canada and the Soufriere Regional Development Foundation.

Director on the Board of the Soufriere Regional Development Foundation Hamish Philip says the project aims to raise the overall standard of Sulphur Spring site. “So far, two components of the project have been completed, which include among other things, development of a trail and construction of an interpretation centre and a service building. The Government of St. Lucia’s contribution to the project include all infrastructural works, such as the new road from the Rabott Estate, leading to the solid part of the Sulphur Springs Park, and the provision of utilities such as electricity, water and telephone.”

Phillip indicated that following the completion of the Sulphur Springs Project in June this year, the public can expect the entrance fee to be slightly higher.

“It will be at seven dollars for visitors and five dollars for locals. The board of the Soufriere Foundation is of the opinion that the entrance fee to the park is under priced as compared to the other sites and services here in the island.”

The Sulphur Springs is acclaimed as being the world’s only drive volcano.
