Renovated Playground At Griffeen Valley Park

Renovated Playground At Griffeen Valley Park

Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Councillor Mark Ward officially opens the renovated playground at Griffeen Valley Park Lucan

Speaking at the event Mayor Cllr Mark Ward said, “The ideas for change came from a survey of the existing playground users and utilises natural play principles, which have been tried and tested during the delivery of the Council’s playspace programme across the county.” Natural play has benefits for children in terms of increasing mental and physical well-being, developing imagination and allowing children to assess risk and develop their coping abilities. The Mayor went on to pay tribute to the local community for their support of the popular playground and the work of the Council staff in managing the project and maintaining the playground.
