QUEEN’S PARK was given an $80 000 facelift yesterday.

The names of its three gates, which had all but faded from visibility and from social memory, and new interpretive signage will be there for all to see.

Yesterday, executives and staff from CIBC FirstCaribbean gave the facelift to the more than 200 year-old green space, which dates back to the 1780s when British soldiers used it as a garrison. It was done under the watchful eye of officials from the National Conservation Commission.

Managing director of retail banking, Mark St Hill, revealed that the refurbishment project cost CIBC $80 000 and entailed not only repainting, but new interpretive signage as well.

“It’s also going to be educational because we will be doing a number of interactive trail signs,” St Hill explained. (HLE)
