It seems the Errol Barrow Memorial Park in the Pine, St. Michael may need some special attention.

That is because several casuarina trees over hang the road that runs parallel to the park, and residents who live nearby are fearful they might break off and damage passing vehicles, pedestrians and children who play there.

From all appearances, some of the termite-infested picnic tables need replacing.

The National Conservation Commission is the government agency responsible for the operation and maintenance of the park, which was set up in honour of the late National Hero and Prime Minister, Errol Walton Barrow.

When contacted, General Manager of the NCC, Keith Neblett told Barbados TODAY, he would look into the matter.

The community park, which was opened on November 28, 1987, is used by some residents of the Pine and Wildey areas annually to celebrate Errol Barrow Day, a public holiday on January 21st. The facility has his name spelt out in decorative letters on the ground of the garden. (EJ)
