Mule Park when the mule & carts use to hang out there. In our time, you used to be able to rent a bicycle cart from there in order to cart your Christmas tree home. In earlier years, you could rent a mule and cart to carry your goods, or you take a ride. This is in front of the now Belize Bank.

Mule Park in San Ignacio, long ago

Mule Park was its name given, because this was where the Mule & Carts were made available, to transport goods to any part of Belize City.

Later, this became known as, the place where the latest gossips ( news ) could be heard. Some called it "Shu Shu Park." Shu shu park da mi before the facey book.

I remember there were two concrete double benches there. Each bench shared the same back (back to back benches). One bench faced Albert St. and the other faced Regent St. They were popularly known as Lazy Man Bench.

From a friend... Just few years back Bowen and Bowen adopted it and renew it looking nice now and every year they light up a huge Christmas tree there. When I came to Belize in 1970 there were plenty of carts running around delivering supplies from customs warehouse to shops. Loved watching them and the men swinging the bridge in the am and pm.

We use to chase the Mule and Carts and ride them until the owner got mad at us and told us to get off!!!! I miss those days!!!
