Wednesday, February 09, 2011 –   A signature community enhancement project will soon be unveiled by government.   Parliamentary Representative for Castries Central, Honourable Richard Frederick announced that the transformation of the Lions Park in Sans- Souci, Castries will be complete in the coming weeks.


“I am very happy with the progress that Lions Park is making. In that regard, I want to thank the Prime Minister- I approached him for funds to facilitate the improvement of that area because one understands that Tourism has usurped the role of Agriculture and has essentially become our main foreign exchange earner. And so you have to give tourist an ambiance that is pleasant, that gives you the compunction to return,” Minister Frederick explained.


The Lions Park is along the route travelled by cruise passengers disembarking from Pointe Seraphine and making their way into the city center.


The park, Frederick says, is ideally located in an area near the Castries Harbour that receives heavy tourist traffic, and is well placed to provide a lasting impact on visitors and locals alike.


 “Signature projects like these will remain ineffably stamped on the minds of the visitors because it would be one of the first things that they see. It will be equipped with a fountain, lights, chairs, umbrellas, washrooms, a concessionary, and everything that would be necessary to bring every user into a comfort zone.”


In all of this, Frederick says, his constituents are the driving force behind the move to improve Lions Park, both in terms of employment generation and community enhancement.   Since the ground breaking ceremony held in May last year, the MP says, a number of residents from Sans-Souci and environs have been employed under the Project.
