Brooke Park outdoor events area work on track –Cooper

Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has welcomed news  he has received which has stated that the final works underway at the Brooke Park outdoor events area are on track and will allow it to be ready for use later this year for events.


“This is good news for the local community and users of Brooke Park that this work has progressed.” he said DSC_0035


I will be discussing what events can be held with the Derry City Council events team , representatives of CRAFT based in Rosemount  and the Outer west Neighbourhood Partnership in next few weeks.


With my help CRAFT will also be submitting an application to Heritage Lottery Fund in next few weeks for a new heritage exhibition in the  Rosemount factory.


It’s very important we are proactive in developing infrastructure and facilities in the greater Brooke Park area in advance of the wider restoration of the main park which we expect to begin in near future.
