“Corkagh Park is about to get a new €400K playground to open by the end of year. The playground is currently under construction, construction will continue during Level 5, weather permitting. There is no exact opening date for the new Corkagh park as yet but the aim is for the end of November,” stated local Clondalkin Councillor Trevor Gilligan. “This is a welcome development during these unprecedented times. The Corkagh park playground has a special place in our hearts, this upgrade is long overdue and I commend SDCC for their creativity and ideas. During COVID restrictions. Parks, playgrounds and allotments are open in line with guidance and social distancing.”
“The playground will be fully buggy and wheelchair accessible. This has been a huge issue since I have been elected in 2004 and before. It is probably the only playground with stones and you can’t drag a buggy over the stones. There will be no more stones anywhere.T here are new tarmac paths around the outside and through the centre and the safety surfacing is woodchip. This will be unrecognisable from what was there previously. I would like to thank the team at SDCC for their dedication to this development. The plans include: Forts, Slides, Huts, Tunnels, Wobble Belt, Balance, Nets, Spinner, Spring, Trampolines, and more. Most importantly for the adults, not one, but two Ziplines!!” concluded Cllr Trevor Gilligan.
