New playpark opens in Clabby

4th June 2018

A new state of the art playpark has been officially opened in Clabby.

Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Stephen McCann, was joined by members of the local community and fellow Councillors to officially open the new playpark which is located in the centre of the village.

Speaking about the opening of the playpark, Councillor McCann, said:

“The Council recognises the importance of providing well-equipped, safe, attractive and accessible play areas for the development of our children.  Playparks provide an opportunity for children to get active while having fun and the Council was pleased to work in partnership with the local community to develop a new playpark for the village and to create more opportunities for our young people to be physically active.

I would like to thank all those involved in bringing this project to life and hope that the playpark becomes a real hub for the local community to meet, get active and have fun.”

The new playpark, with a range of high quality play equipment suitable for toddlers to young teens, includes an accessible roundabout which is suitable for wheelchair users.

It was completed at a cost of £114,229 funded by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council with a further £1,000 contribution secured by the Clabby community from RES Wind Farm Company.

The development of the new play area is a continuation of the Council’s commitment to improve the quality of life of its residents by providing high quality leisure, recreation and sports facilities across the district.
