Your help is needed as the Village of North Palm Beach looks to install a new playground in Anchorage Park. Here are details from the Village of North Palm Beach website:
Anchorage Park at 603 Anchorage Drive is getting a new playground!
The new pieces will replace the existing equipment, in the same spot. The only piece of equipment that will be staying is the new merry-go-round that was installed a few months back. The small pavilions will also be staying.
“We are really excited to be bringing a new playground to Anchorage Park, especially one that is full of shade, shade, shade!” says Village of North Palm Beach Director of Leisure Services Zak Sherman.
“During the Needs Assessment that was conducted last year, we heard residents voice their concerns that shade for playgrounds is a big priority.”
“That’s why our final two designs have massive amounts of shade.”
To help move the process forward, the Village is asking residents to select their favorite playground design through a community survey, and the winning design will be constructed in the upcoming year.
Families can view the two design options and vote via online survey or in person at Anchorage Park Activities building, 603 Anchorage Dr.
The survey is open until 8:00 p.m. April 18, 2022.
You can take the survey HERE, where you can see pictures of the two proposals.
The purpose is to gather feedback which will help to ensure that the new playground meets the needs of the community, so please spread it to any and all that you know who use the playground. The survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes.
Thank you for taking the time to share your input!
For more information or questions regarding this project, please contact Stephen Poh, Superintendent of Parks and Recreation, or Zak Sherman, Director of Leisure Services, by email or phone, (561) 841-3386.
Two options (below) are proposed for a new playground at Anchorage Park. THANK YOU for your interest in the future of the Anchorage Park playground!

The Tale of a Hat and the Hero
By GERRY BARKER
Some say customer service is a thing of the past. Many times, as we all know, that's true. But when you do experience exemplary service, it should be acknowledged and praised. And that's why we say, "Great job, Nuri!"
We met Nuri in Belize City on a shore excursion during a Celebrity Apex cruise. He was one of three tour guides who took us to the Lamanai Mayan ruins, located in the jungle northwest of the city. It's a one-hour bus ride, followed by 30 minutes on a high-speed boat on the Belize River.
With the sun bearing down, Pam had a wide-trim, straw hat for protection, and held onto it tightly during the boat ride. When we got off the boat, we had to cross a bridge. That's when a sudden gust of wind blew her hat right into the river. We watched in dismay as it slowly sank to the bottom of the crocodile-infested waters. C'est la guerre, as the French say.
So our first order of business was finding a shop and looking for a replacement hat. It was slim pickings, and pretty much all they had was a hat that was a better suited for kids. But it was something.
We caught up with the tour group, who were admiring the Jaguar Temple (incredible how the Mayans built their cities and temples by hand). As we stood listening to the guide, Nuri came up to Pam with -- we couldn't believe it -- her hat!
After we left the bridge, he took off his shirt and dived into the water to retrieve it. Now I think you can agree that redefines going above and beyond.
For his efforts, Nuri scored a big tip and our admiration. And the hat Pam bought is now going to our granddaughter, Cate.
If you ever get the opportunity to go to Belize and want a tour, by all means ask for Nuri. He's our hero.
Celebrate Empanada Day at Barrio
West Palm Beach, FL – In celebration of National Empanada Day, April 8, Barrio's executive chef Rolando Anoceto will roll out his street food-inspired beer braised empanadas ($11) stuffed with dry-aged Spanish chorizo, house-cured manchego, and drizzled with smoked sweet pepper aioli.
A beloved culinary treasure in Latin America and Spain, empanadas are easy-to-eat pastries layered with meats, vegetables, and cheese. Tracing back to ancient Persia, the crescent-shaped empanadas (Spanish for "to wrap in bread") takes its ancestral cues from the samosa, a triangular treat loaded with spiced beef, peas, and potatoes.
Feeling cheersy? Snag a seat at Barrio's plein air bar and enjoy $2 off Happy Hour quaffs from 4-7 p.m. daily.
Barrio is located in The Square at 700 S. Rosemary Avenue, Second Floor, West Palm Beach. For more information, call (561) 366-0071 or visit barriowpb.com.
