Tannaghmore Gardens

Tannaghmore Gardens is set to get a new £250,000 play park.

The project, which has been in the pipeline for a while, finally had planning passed on Tuesday night, following consultation with the community.

Welcoming the news for the Craigavon venue, Sinn Fein councillor Catherine Nelson said: “I want to first of all commend the vision of the council officers involved in driving this initiative.

“They have engaged with the local community – particularly children – to arrive at a state of the art, accessible play park that will target and challenge children up to the age of 14.”

Adding: “I am particularly delighted with the sensory experiences children will enjoy which will ensure children with additional needs do not just have physical access to the park.

“Much of the equipment is also wheelchair accessible ensuring children can play together irrespective of ability or need – leaving no child isolated.

“In the time ahead the park will close for 16 weeks to ensure it is opened in time for the summer but the animal farm will remain opened.

“I will continue to lobby for enhanced toilet facilities as well as adequate pathways linking the Aghacommon and Derrymacash communities to the park from the Kilvergan Road.”
