We were delighted to have Cllr Paschal Fitzmaurice announce plans for the upgrading and refurbishment of the playground facilities in Castlerea.
This development will consist of a new car park behind the pool with approx 30 parking spaces and a new entrance to the pool making it much safer for children/pedestrians. The current playground will be extended and new equipment and safety fencing added.
There will also be landscaping of the park area to the left of the Girl Guides Den making it a lovely area to play/picnic with all the family.
This is an exciting development for our Town. We want to thank Roscommon County Council, The Towns Trust, Harmac Medical and our local councillors who have believed in this project from day one and a special word of thanks to Cllr Paschal Fitzmaurice who has worked tirelessly on this project for over a year.
There will be a public meeting held on the development in a few weeks time and we will be looking for 30 volunteers to do one day per month to help keep the playground a safe and clean for all our children so keep an eye here on our website and our Facebook page for more details.
