Sinn Féin Councillor for the greater Shantallow area Tony Hassan has welcomed the news that a new play park as part an overall masterplan for Ballyarnett Country Park has been approved by Derry City and Strabane District Council
Councillor Tony Hassan said
“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.
