Funding confirmed for new park in Carndonagh

Funding has been announced today for the planned new park in Carndonagh, with most of the money coming from the Inishowen Leader Company.

The Inishowen Development Partnership is providing  €500,000 to Carndonagh Playground Development Committee for the completion of the new park.

Announcing the funding Minister Phil Hogan said the project will cost a total of €666,666.

The park has been designed by the local community in association with Diarmuid Gavin Designs and comprises a play area, cycle cross track, elderly fitness zone, public art sculptures and a network of walkways.

There were a number of public meetings in the town last year at which the proposal was discussed, and local schoolchildren have been closely involved in the design.
