Mule Park was built at this location in 1912. Its name came from the drayage of the day, locally known as "mule & cart". The mules would rest under the trees while their draymen did business on Front and Back Streets (modern day Regent and Albert Streets, respectively). This small park was also a popular gathering spot.At one time there were three cannons displayed in the park. On Dr. Karl Heusner's recommendation, two cannons used in the famous Battle of St. George's Caye were mounted in the park to commemorate this historic 1798 battle. The third was a World War I German cannon in recognition of the brave Belizeans who proudly fought that war.Today, Mule Park stands in the heart of Belize City as a symbol of our country's rich history.Restored by Bowen & Bowen, Ltd. in 2011.
