George Town’s Windsor Park, Neil
Godfrey Park, and Central Park are getting spruced up.
Last year, MLA Ellio Solomon
invited Andy Adapa, senior manager of Dart’s Nursery, and Lynn Smith-Moore,
Dart communications manager, to take a tour of the three parks, which were due
for some improvements. Dart Cayman Islands, which often helps out on community
projects, agreed to provide assistance.
“These parks are an important part
of our country and it’s critical that we take care of them,” said Mr. Solomon.
“They can be a breeding ground for
crime, for drugs, for all kind of activities that are not helping our communities
or our youth. But by enhancing them, providing new fencing, fixing the
basketball courts and simply providing some much needed shade and new foliage,
we will be ensuring the people of these communities – the children and their
parents – can really enjoy plus take pride in their own neighbourhoods.”
With involvement and hard work by
different community groups, along with George Town Community Development Officer
Dorline Welcome and Dart’s nursery team, the enhancements are well under way
and will continue for the next several weeks. These include new bleachers for
Central Park, and trees, a new wall and a cabana for Neil Godfrey.
“There’s still a great deal of work
to be done,” said Andy Adapa, the senior manager for nursery services for Dart
Cayman Islands. “We are aiming to start work in Windsor Park by early October
and are still considering other improvements that can be made to both Neil
Godfrey and Central Park.”
Mr. Solomon recognised the efforts
of the Dart Group, Rotary and the community groups in each of the George Town
“I couldn’t be more pleased and am
looking forward to enjoying the parks in the future with my own family,” he
Mr. Solomon and the Dart Group plan
to meet again to review the parks once the enhancements are completed.
