Roaring Creek

 

Roaring Creek village is one of the oldest communities along the George Price highway.  This community existed during the time when The Belize Old River was the only means of transport from Belize City to San Ignacio.  It is located along the banks of the Roaring Creek   where it meets the Belize Old River, and runs along the George Price Highway at mile fifty to fifty- one.  Belmopan is less than a mile away.

  • This village is home to over two thousand  residents of Creole, Mestizo, and other ethnic groups.

  • This community has the second highest number of persons primary school, in High School and attending University.  In Cayo south, this village shows the highest number of persons who own their lands and homes.
  • The economic activity here consists of subsistence farming, business, public services, Construction workers, merchandising, and various activities in the service industry.  Nature has gifted Roaring creek with beautiful forested areas and refreshing waters of the creek and river. 
  • During leisure time the banks of the creek and river are lively with youthful activities.

    Roaring Creek is uniquely located near the junction of the Hummingbird and the George Price highways.  This has been a huge economic benefit to this community.  Just imagine, this community existed at the time when the cart roads to the west and south were established.It has been involved in many huge construction projects for example; all phases of the construction of the hummingbird and the western highways, the construction of Belmopan, and the construction of the Valley of peace community in its vicinity.  This community was an economic hub.  It was once called the Capital of Belmopan.   With all the high economic activity of the past, the majority of the population used their gain to obtain too many things and services of a temporary nature; thus, there is not much to show of the past good fortunes.
