Local kids are thrilled with this.
A new Pocket Park is now open in Ballydesmond, creating a much-needed outdoor space for families to enjoy.
Officially opened by Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, The Ballydesmond Pocket Park project was delivered as part of an overall project to improve the village centre that received RRDF funding of almost €870,000.
“This new park has provided a vibrant, attractive space for the local community to gather, socialise, exercise or simply relax.” said Humphreys.
“Funding of almost €870,000 was provided from my Department’s Rural Regeneration and Development Fund to enhance Ballydesmond village through the delivering of this park, as well as the delivery of much needed public realm improvements and recreational amenities for the community.
