I originally created and posted a Blog on May 18, 2010 about a wonderful Lake Charles Park--  Shiver Me Timbers Millennium Park.  This fun park has been a lakefront destination and landmark of downtown Lake Charles for the enjoyment of  children and families since 2000. 

Lake Charles residents were shocked and saddened to awake to the news Sunday morning January 9, 2011 that Millennium Park has been destroyed by an arson fire.

Since the fire occurred,  there has been a grass roots effort to begin brainstorming and discuss rebuilding the park.  Residents and the Lake Charles City officials have begun to discuss forming volunteer committees to bring this park back to life.  It did not take long for a Rebuilding Shiver Me Timbers Park Facebook Page to pop up and the City of Lake Charles also has Rebuilding Millennium Park information on the City of Lake Charles website.

By reviewing my original blog shared below, you can see what a valuable recreational park the City of Lake Charles has lost!  One thing about the Lake Charles community that I love being a part of is the heart of residents and the volunteer effort.   Local televisision KPLC TV reported the latest with the community rebuilding effort.  One improvement will be security and better lighting.  

I know we can rebuild Shiver Me Timbers and make it bigger and better than before!  Stay tuned for an update in the future!

Wow! I was stationed at Fort Polk, LA for a few years and really enjoyed the Lake Charles area. This was such a nice park.

Gerry, yes this has what has outraged citizens.  This was a a HUGE community volunteer project in 2000 that many participated in and now it is gone, such a shame

Marilyn, I'm so sorry. Don't we love and appreciate the things we have because of community volunteerism?
