These play areas have benefits in terms of increasing mental and physical well-being, developing imagination and allowing children to assess risk and develop their coping abilities.

 Speaking at the event Mayor Cllr Ed O’Brien said: “This opening ceremony marks the delivery of a significant project for young people and families in the area.

Since the playspace has opened, there has been an increase in family groups using the park and everyone is getting more exercise and fresh air.”

The Mayor went on to pay tribute to the local community and local football club for their support of the popular playspace in Collinstown Park and the work of council staff in managing the project and maintaining the playspace.
