The new play park at Castlemara is open

by | Aug 17, 2022

The much-anticipated new play park at Castlemara, Carrickfergus, is now open for fun!

The new play park was developed following a community consultation process which helped shaped this fantastic provision for children of all abilities.

Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, Alderman Noel Willams, said “Council takes the importance of play seriously and recognises how important it is for the health and wellbeing of our children and young people. I believe the opening of this new play park demonstrates Council’s commitment to delivering new quality play provision across the Borough as highlighted in our Play Investment Strategy.

“I am particularly delighted to see that there is a greater emphasis on ease of access and inclusivity with the inclusion of sensory equipment, accessible roundabouts and other accessible pieces.

“Establishing better quality play parks is part of our wider ambition to ensure that communities have a real sense of identity and place, and that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy them. I hope that this new play park is enjoyed by the children and young people for many years to come”

The project was completed by Haffey’s Sports Grounds and handed over to Council on 5 August with the official opening taking place on 10 August.
