Our small community in LaBelle, Florida, has faced hardships like most towns in Florida. The difference is that LaBelle has an organization named LaBelle Downtown Revitalization Corporation (LDRC). LDRC is a small group of volunteers working to transform the downtown district of LaBelle into its full potential. LaBelle has a beautiful city park along the Caloosahatchee River. Barron Park is a historical landmark canopied under notable oak trees and is the focal point of Downtown LaBelle. The beloved park has fallen into some disrepair over the years. LDRC works to raise private funds to renovate the park. There are projects to renovate the gazebo and create an outdoor gaming area suitable for all ages in the works. Barron Park sees thousands of visitors a year during the famous Swamp Cabbage Festival, which should be on everyone's bucket list! LaBelle is famous for swamp cabbage, but it should be famous for its kindness. The community gathers at the park to help others whenever someone is in need. Barron Park is the place to help the cheerleading team get to Hawaii, help the wife that lost her husband, or rally around someone who has cancer. The people that live in this great town deserve only the finest. That is why LDRC plans to continue the renovation progress with new seating replacing the old wooden planks that visitors currently use. Winning this contest would assist in our efforts to replace the wooden seating that has been in place for over 30 years. The replacement benches are stable, long-lasting, durable, and maintenance-free, allowing those enjoying live music, a church function, or a clogging or dance recital to be comfortable. We want Barron Park to continue to be a welcoming part of the downtown district, just a little more modern and safer!
