Fun and laughter for everyone at this state-of-the-art, inclusive ‘destination play park’ and represents the Council’s ambitious Play Park Strategy for the district.
The new play park has been redeveloped around the theme of ‘bridges and spires’, reflecting the landscape and heritage of Omagh and also includes specialised inclusive play equipment as well as a sensory garden. It is situated against the backdrop of mature trees, a wildflower meadow and a tree trail which will offer enhanced play value and ensure the natural environment is maintained.
The new play park provides an exciting, fun, inclusive, accessible and safe place for parents and children of all abilities. The integration of the green space and the theme of bridges and spires will help to ensure the outstanding and culturally rich environment is cherished, sustainably managed and appropriately accessible.
Recognising that the “key stakeholders” in this project are children and young people, the Council was particularly delighted to welcome representatives from a number of local primary schools in Omagh to a VIP Play day in advance of the official opening, providing some of the pupils the opportunity to be the first to try out the new play park!
