New sign lights up Battlefield Park

The historic Battlefield Park has a new decoration: a Belize sign where people can take photographs and have a reminder of where they are. Mayor Darrell Bradley says it is part of his continued transformation of downtown Belize City from the “Old” Capital to a vibrant and lively space. The sign, created by Estevan Perera and Slingshot Signs, is the first of several planned for key areas within Belize City and is part of the city’s brand and identity.

“This sign and the cutting of it today recognizes that, that we need support from our private sector partners in this case Steve Perrera and Slingshot signs to do things like this to really put that sealer ion the transformation. You would have seen during the interview this afternoon there are several people including a father and daughter who are visitors to our city, who are taking pictures and enjoying the frame. That’s what we want; we want people to really enjoy different spaces in Belize City. You can have the physical space, you can have the development in the infrastructure but you have to have when you talk about place and place making. You have to have a connection with that space and I think with this frame, once of the significance of this, is that it really signals and showcases an iconic building in Belize City, our old Supreme Court building but also that it encourages people to have fun with Battlefield park and have fun with downtown Belize City. One of the things that I also mentioned in the presentation is that we are trying to encourage more walking traffic so that yes you can come to Belize City. You can visit and stay at Fort George Hotel, but usually you would walk at the Memorial Park, you may go to the Tourism Village, you may go to B.T.L. Park but this encourages you to come on the Southside of Belize City, to come to Battlefield Park.”

 

Further signs are planned for Cinderella Plaza and Yabra Field, while work continues apace on other projects including the redevelopment of Wilton Cumberbatch Field.
