“This is  welcome news for the  thousands of people who live right across the district. The Ballyarnett Country Park can provide a wide range of opportunities and act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the area. It has been underutilised for many years .And I believe it has nowhere reached its full potential yet, in providing parklands and facilities for residents in the local area and for the city as a whole.

This  announcement that a new play park as part  an overall masterplan for Ballyarnett Country Park has been approved by the council is a major step forward. The plans include additional play facilities, biodiversity projects, walking and cycling routes and act as a venue for the Arts and Sporting sectors. It offers a real opportunity to build the foundation’s for the next 5-10 years and put in place something the entire community can be proud of.
