Camp Lamentin, an old camp of the abolished Haitian army may become a rehabilitation center for the youth in Carrefour. Mayor Yvon Jerome negotiated with the government to build the largest attraction park in Haiti on 50 acres. “There is a shortage of attraction and amusement for the people of Carrefour, “ Jerome, said. ”A new park would allow us to take the pressure off the youth and give Carrefour a central location to better meet the people’s needs.” The remaining buildings have been demolished and the land is being converted into a public park that will feature an amphitheater, 4 playgrounds, 5 cafeterias, and a parking lot. The project is financed largely by the Inter American Development Bank and will be named “Parc Urbain Phare de Lamentin 54”.
