The Fort Myers Mural Society painted the first outdoor mural in the River District in almost 20 years, Saturday.

The mural titled, "Welcome to Paradise" is located on the east side of Gecko Holdings building located at 2431 First St.

The Florida Mural Trail is a statewide trail that connects "mural cities" with art enthusiasts offering each visitor the opportunity to enjoy outdoor public art while encouraging tourism.

The FMMS has been asked to facilitate the painting of 2 more murals in the downtown area in the next three months.
