The Children’s Park gets a well needed coat of paint!

The newly painted park!Aurora, Fernando and little Hugo!

Caye Caulker is thankful for the love from its residents and visitors alike and the Children’s Park is feeling that love today after it’s renovation and paintwork undertaken by the village yesterday!

Visitors (and hopefully long-term visitors) Fernando, Aurora and their little son Hugo came to our little paradise some 2 months ago.  They fell in love with the island but particularly the Children’s Park that is located next to Caye Reef and opposite Frenchie’s Dive Shop.  The Park was created many years ago by Lionel Heredia (Chocolate) , Maria Vega and Ilna Auxillou who have tirelessly organized its repair and upkeep and we are grateful and thankful for their endeavors.

The park ..... the park again ..... more painted park!

However, Fernando and Aurora felt that they could assist in the renovations this year and have taken it upon their shoulders to muster up the assistants of the community for both the labor and for donations to get this project underway.  Yesterday was the big day and it was heartwarming to see so many people get involved and pick up a paint brush or a hammer to make the park safe both safe and eye catching!!

THANK YOU to all concerned!!  It is community spirited projects like this that keep our island looking vibrant and colorful – plus a wonderfully safe place for children to play!!

    We also love the children’s park. I know that Ilna Auxillou and Annie Seashore are concerned that the park continue to serve the community as it has in the past. If anyone residing long term on CC is willing to start a committee along with the village council I am certain these two individuals would gladly offer their guidance! I only wish we were here more often and were able to take on the task.
