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.
