The Serenity Park in Castries has officially been renamed the Sir George William Mallet Serenity Park. The renaming, which saw the unveiling of the plaque with the new name, took place during a special ceremony held on Feb. 13, at the facility.

In his address, His Worship Mayor Peterson D. Francis spoke of the need to honor sons of the soil.

“Sir George William Mallet and many others who have travelled this road and canvassed this area, contributed to change and the establishment of a truly democratic state. They struggled to create a society where people are valued and add to the development of the country. Without memory, there is no culture. Without memory, there would be no civilization, no society and no future. Memories of the past must be vital lessons of history. It means that we keep alive the memories that shaped our history and honor the names and the legacies of the men and women who made the supreme sacrifice in a struggle to ensure a democratic and united Saint Lucia,” said Mayor Francis.

Mr. Hollis Bristol shared a personal perspective on the late Sir George William Mallet, while the daughter of the late Sir George, Miss Juliet Mallet-Phillip, expressed her family’s gratitude for the honor bestowed on her father.

The plaque bearing the new name for the park was unveiled by a group that included the Acting Prime Minister Hon. Guy Joseph, Mayor Peterson D. Francis, and Castries Central MP Hon. Sarah Flood-Beaubrun.
