Construction News Image
The Mayor of Ards and North Down, Councillor Jennifer Gilmour, has officially opened several new and refurbished play parks, highlighting a £650,000 investment by Ards and North Down Borough Council.

New play parks in Bangor and Ballygowan have been officially opened, with more to follow in Newtownards, Kircubbin and Helen's Bay.

Dickson Park in Ballygowan has undergone an upgrade, transitioning from a Tier 3 to a Tier 2 play park. This improvement will greatly benefit the children in the area. Play and Leisure Services have installed brand new equipment, such as swings and climbing frames, designed to cater to children of all ages and abilities.

The Mayor also opened the newly refurbished play park at Kilcooley Square. Collaborating with Garden Escapes, they've crafted a vibrant, modern and enjoyable play area, featuring accessible equipment tailored for children of diverse abilities.

The Mayor of Ards and North Down, Councillor Jennifer Gilmour, said: "Levelling Up funding helped to cover the cost of a new play park in Comber's DeWind Drive last year, so the Council was able to roll over the money it had set aside for that park to be able to increase its investment in play parks this year. These are really worthwhile investments and the new and refurbished play parks are fantastic assets for the local community."

Additional play parks in Newtownards, Kircubbin and Helen's Bay will be officially opened over the coming weeks.
