The old fountain at Battlefield (Central) Park in Belize City, and the original Barclays Bank building, downtown Belize City long ago

Our famous Battle Field Park where political forums were held, e.g. Antonio Soberanis labour demands (that's his bust), the famous huge crowd that gathered to listen to the members of the People's Committee and Clifford Betzen, President of the BHGWU making demands against the Colonial Government and its Governor Garvey over the Devaluation of the B.H. Dollar... December 31st, 1949

Harold Usher: I wish this was still there. First time I took my children (Canadian born) to Belize, I had them playing on this fountain.

Its not really a park now. one big open space.

Central Park WAS El Centro! Downtown!

Merilyn Tatum: My parents would take us there for a Sunday evening stroll. My dad had a kodak box camera and would have us pose by the fountain for pics----such great memories..

I especially enjoyed when the fountain worked and the flowers bloomed!

Kamigami Tenshi: This was my grand dad's Mac Schmidt favorite place to be. As a kid I don't recall seeing this as a park but as a place to walk through to attend the Scotch church or the market. To me it was just there taxi stand in the front, court house to the back, brodies and the bank on thé sides......

Allison Barker: I remember the park I love to go to the park with my brothers and sisters and walk out to fortshore and the breeze blow in you hair it wonderful time for me in the year 1975, the was good up to 1981 after independence the little belize change , for what it is today. I will allways cherish the memory I have of the park , I all way like to see the swing bridge open for the boat to come through, I live on king street so it was the place to go in evening and sunday. The next place is Rogers station, to see soft ball game , coke , green strick, Guinness , mil port, we come down off the bus and go and see soft ball game, I remember when sat. Night you can pick who you will go dance lord Rayburn or harmony met, mogan, professional, bum shine band, or fuller or glen bood. Your prime minister he go dance

I sheltered in the Barclays Bank building with my family during hurricane Hattie. Also my school chum Trevor Graham lived with his folks in the penthouse.
