Councillor Logue said

“I am very pleased that the preferred option to come before Derry City Council shortly for a new state of the play park will be in the Showground’s. This is another piece of that overall jigsaw of the  Foyle Valley Gateway plans.

The plans for the redevelopment of the Brandywell, the Showground’s and the Daisyfield have been a long time coming but it’s brilliant that things are moving in the right direction over the last few months.

It will transform the entire area and have a positive impact on the lives of family’s right across the locality. Residents have been asking every time we are on the doorstep doing community surveys for children’s play facilities.
