Constitution Park in Belize City Undergoes Transformative Renovation

Belize City, Belize, February 1, 2024:  In a bid to revitalize and modernize one of Belize City’s beloved public spaces, the Belize Tourism Board (BTB), in collaboration with the Belize City Council, today inaugurated the newly renovated Constitution Park. Situated at the corner of Cemetery Road and Johnson Street, Constitution Park has been a cherished recreational area for over 36 years, and the renovation aims to make this iconic location more appealing to both local residents and international tourists.

Key features of the renovation project included the addition of environmentally friendly solar lights providing a safer and inviting atmosphere during evening hours. A central gazeebo will serve as a focal point within the park. This shaded area will be versatile, offering a space for gatherings, events, or simply a tranquil spot to relax. 

The project scope also included extensive landscaping, which has transformed the park into a visually appealing and harmonious space, incorporating a diverse selection of plants that complement the overall theme. Four sitting pergolas, each equipped with two chairs, have been strategically placed throughout the park, providing comfortable seating areas for visitors to enjoy the surroundings.

Several park benches have also been installed, ensuring ample seating options for those looking to unwind and appreciate the rejuvenated atmosphere. To further enhance safety and security, the renovation project included the installation of three security cameras strategically positioned within the park. Additionally, two hanging gardens will contribute to the park’s aesthetic appeal, creating a harmonious blend of nature and modern amenities.

Anthony Mahler, Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, Mrs. Nicole Solano, CEO of the Ministry of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, His Worship Bernard Wagner, Mayor of Belize City, Mr. Evan Tillett, Director of Tourism, BTB, Mr. Josue Carballo, Director of Industry Development, BTB, and Councillor Natasha Pipersburgh of the Belize City Council.  Minister Mahler shared, “Belize City is the heartbeat and commercial hub of Belize and the partnership with the Belize City Council has helped tremendously in investing not only in infrastructure, but also in our people.” The Minister also spoke about BTB’s plans for other projects in Belize City and the entire country of Belize.

The BTB envisions the Constitution Park as a welcoming destination for families, individuals, and tourists alike. This revitalization project reflects BTB’s commitment to preserving and enhancing Belize’s cultural and recreational spaces.
