Dart working on public park upgrades

| 27/09/2010

(CNS): Although the Dart Group has established a number of public parks in its own name over the years, the developer has more recently been working on upgrading a number of existing public parks in the George Town area. According to a release from the firm, Dart Cayman Islands is currently working on Windsor Park, Neil Godfrey Park, and Central Park. Working with George Town MLA Ellio Solomon and local community groups Dart’s senior nursery manager  Andy Adapa and his team have already put in new bleachers in Central Park, trees in Neil Godfrey as well as a new wall and cabana.

“There’s still a great deal of work to be done,” explained Adapa. “We are aiming to start work in Windsor Park by early October and are still considering other improvements that can be made to both Neil Godfrey and Central Park.
Solomon who approached Dart for help said the parks are an important part of the country and if they weren’t taken care of they could become a breeding ground for crime, for drugs for all kind of activities that don’t help young people or the communities. “But by enhancing them, providing new fencing, fixing the basketball courts and simply providing some much needed shade and newfoliage, we will be ensuring the people of these communities – the children and their parents – can really enjoy plus take pride in their own neighbourhoods,” Solomon said.
“It’s important that we recognize all of the efforts that the Dart group has contributed as well as Rotary and the valuable community groups in each of the George Town districts. I couldn’t be more pleased and am looking forward to enjoying the parks in the future with my own family.”

    The Brac should fix their own problems. You don’t serve any purpose to the rest of the country and all Bracers expect a hand out. You don’t produce anything or help to bring in any revenue. Your community is small enough that you can come together and fix your own problems.

    Maybe Dart could see fit to assisting Cayman Brac once and a while… instead of just making friends in high places… be a truely responsible corperate citizen. They wouldn’t even return phone calls in the wake of hurricane Paloma.

      Completely incorrect.  Dart did indeed help after Paloma.  As soon as damage and needs were assessed, Dart assembled work crews, supplies and tools and sent them to the Brac, not just once but on 2 occasions. The crews even brought their own personal supplies so as not to burden existing relief efforts.
