BTIA Joins Memorial Park Development Steering Committee

The Memorial Park in Belize City sits on the sea front and offers a memorial to fallen World War I soldiers. It has become a historic landmark providing a venue for leisure and economic activity for residents of the city.

The Belize City Council and the Belize Tourism Board recognize that there is much potential for further development of the park and have formed a steering committee that will review and make recommendations for improvement. BTIA has been invited to serve on this committee and collaborate in the joint effort to create a vibrant park that will be attractive to visitors while serving the needs of the community.

The first meeting was held in late November and had the participation of BTB’s Destination Development Officer, Leslie Sanchez, Councilor Natasha Pipersburgh, BTIA’s Renae Martinez, City Administrator Mrs. Stephanie Lindo and Belize City Council’s Director of Administration, Ms. Sharlene Rudon.
