Mid and East Antrim Borough Council is delighted to announce the official opening of the new play park at The Grange.
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, Alderman Noel Willams, said:
“It is fantastic to see the opening of this replacement play park as part of the Council’s Play Investment Framework and Out to Play Strategy. This strategy and ongoing investment in play demonstrates the importance placed on the importance of play throughout the Borough.
“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.
"The last few years have demonstrated the importance of access to quality outdoor spaces on the physical and mental wellbeing of our young people. This new play facility will have a significant impact on the quality of life for younger residents. I hope it is enjoyed by 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 12 August.
