Chalmette, LA – On October 22nd, hundreds of adults and children were in attendance for the Sidney Torres Park Ribbon Cutting.
Parish President Guy McInnis and the St. Bernard Parish Council celebrated the improvements to the park including a new state-of-the-art playground, fitness zone and skate park. These improvements will play an important role in the revitalization of the adjacent neighborhoods and provide additional recreational outlets for our youth.
During the ceremony President McInnis recognized Polly Campbell and the many volunteers who built the original playground and the Torres family for their generous contributions to the park. Cypress Pop Trio performed following the ribbon cutting.
St. Bernard Parish Government Officials thanks everyone for attending and especially McDonald’s, State Farm Insurance Agent Cindi Meyer and the Law Offices of Sidney D. Torres for providing refreshments for the event.
