The completion date of the Golden Square Freedom Park in Bridgetown has again been pushed back.

On Wednesday, Minister of Culture John King, Barbados’ Ambassador to CARICOM David Comissiong and Member of Parliament and Special Envoy for Reparations and Economic Enfranchisement Trevor Prescod, took part in a tour of the project.

King and Comissiong told the Weekend Nation they were happy with the progress when factoring in the damage done by Hurricane Elsa on July 2.

“I’m a realist and I understand there are things you have no control over. I saw pictures of the damage done after the hurricane and how that place looked like. I am just in awe of what they have been able to accomplish in such a short space of time,” King said. (CA)
