Glebe Park Playground & Multi Use Games Arena Official Opening

March 29, 2019 0

Today saw the official opening of the Glebe Park Playground & Multi Use Games Arena in Balrothery by Mayor of Fingal, Cllr. Anthony Lavin.   The project was co funded from Town and Village Renewal Scheme (Department of Rural and Community Development) and the project saw the community in Balrothery work closely with the Planning & Strategic Infrastructure Department of Fingal County Council on the project.

The playground has been designed as a destination facility for families with a strong emphasis on natural play opportunities. A key element of the project brief was that the design of playground reflected the rich local heritage of the area. The striking, central knight themed sculpture draws on the tradition that Balrothery derives its name from Baile na Ridire ‘Town of the Knight’. Meanwhile the multi-use games arena has been designed as a modern fit for purpose facility to cater for 5-side football, basketball and general training activity.

Positive community engagement has been a hallmark of the project and the playground will be enjoyed by many families for years to come…
