MEA | Refurbishment works commence at play park in Larne

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council is delighted to announce that work has begun on the refurbishment of Ferris Park Play Park in Larne.


The appointed contractor - Haffey’s Sports Grounds - will take control of the site on Monday 20 February.


The design of the fantastic new Play Park was developed following a community consultation process, which helped shape this new and modern provision for children of all abilities.


Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, Alderman Noel Williams, said:

“It’s fantastic to see the start of the refurbishment of the Play Park at Ferris Park, which is part of the Council’s Play Investment Framework and ‘Out to Play’ strategy.


“This strategy, and ongoing investment, demonstrates the importance placed on play across the Borough.  I am particularly delighted to see that there is a greater emphasis on ease of access and inclusivity, with the addition of sensory equipment and more accessible pieces of ‘fun equipment’ for the less able.


“The last few years have demonstrated the importance of access to quality outdoor spaces for the positive physical and mental wellbeing of young people. I hope that this new Play Park is enjoyed by the children and young people for many years to come.”


The refurbishment of Ferris Park Play Park has been funded by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council with a contribution of £27K through Department for Communities’ ‘Access & Inclusion’ Fund - which is supporting this project through the purchase of accessible and inclusive equipment.
