Hundreds of kids flocked to Antrim Lough Shore Park yesterday (9 July) to help celebrate the official opening of the fantastic new play park.
Opened by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for County Antrim, Mrs Joan Christie CVO OBE and the Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Paul Michael, the new nautical themed play park is a fantastic asset for everyone in the Borough, as it includes a wheelchair accessible boat. Some elements of the play park were designed by school pupils from across the Borough.
Gateway Visitor Centre
Speaking at the official opening, the Mayor commented, “I am delighted to officially open this new play park. The investment of £250,000 by the Council has made our beautiful park even more attractive to residents and visitors. The new play park also complements the future plans to develop a new Gateway Visitor Centre here in Antrim Lough Shore Park.”
