New Community Space Opens In Feenagh

Construction News Image
An exciting new community space has been opened in the County Limerick village of Feenagh.

Feenagh Community Park provides an accessible social space for the local community and was developed by the Board and directors of Corran-Deel Voluntary Housing Association.

The Community Park was created on a 2-acre site in Feenagh village adjacent to the Community Centre. It includes walkways with public lighting throughout the park, a contemplation area and a space for holding outdoor events as well as tree planting, which include an area of apple trees.

Other spaces within the park have also been identified for future planting and development such as for a sensory and butterfly garden, a bird feeding area and bug hotel. Car parking facilities were provided as part of the project and the Active Travel Team of Limerick City and County Council recently installed bike parking provided for with funding from the National Transport Authority.

The Feenagh Community Park project was part funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development under the 2020 Town and Village Renewal Scheme, which aims to enhance rural towns and villages through the provision of local recreational amenities.

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Francis Foley said: "As we develop our towns and villages it is so important that we remember to make room for nature and to create spaces where people can enjoy the outdoors. Projects like Feenagh Community Park do not materialise out of fresh air. They require people to have vision and determination to see that vision become a reality. Limerick City and County Council are always willing to support this type of community initiative. I want to congratulate everyone involved in delivering this wonderful amenity that can be enjoyed by locals and visitors to Feenagh."
