New parking for Bodden Town Heritage Day

Visitors attending Bodden Town Pirates Week Heritage Day activities this year will no longer have to worry about parking. 

A new lot officially opening at 9 a.m. on Thursday Nov. 19 will provide ninety-seven new parking spaces, built on government crown land off Ena Close on Anton Bodden Drive. The lot will give visitors access to the functions at Harry McCoy Sr. Community Park, off Gun Square. 

A 12-foot-wide, 430-foot-long footpath also connects the parking lot to the park and other historical sites in the area, making access much easier for visitors. 

Bodden Town Heritage Committee member Betty Wood said, “Traffic congestion and finding a place to park on Cumber Avenue and Gun Square during events keeps a lot of people from attending.” She hopes the new parking area will encourage more people to come along this year. 

To get to the new parking lot, visitors can either take the Anton Bodden bypass at the Bodden Town Primary School or by the Bodden Town District Health Centre.

  1. I do hope the Compass will take pictures on this day and see how many people are going to drive all the way into Look out Gardens to attend the Pirates week event being held down by the Mission house.
    The event using the Parking lot in Look out Gardens is about half a mile from the Heritage day activities.
    People can just take the usual 2 minute diversion drive through Gun Square and Cumber Avenue which has been going on for more than 20 years. A place where this is ample parking and the opportunity to enjoy the heritage site of the Guns at the square also to enjoy Ms Norma Heavy Cakes and Miss Mae Stew conch and turtle meat. Why change a good thing.
