It is hoped that the Glenties Community Playground can be reopened to the public soon following its sudden closure last week.
Families were shocked to find padlocks on the playground gates before the Halloween holidays after the Glenties Playground Committee closed the space due to funding issues.
The committee is calling for Donegal County Council to take over responsibility for the area as funding is needed to cover insurance and upkeep costs.
It is now hoped that a resolution can be found to reopen the playground for children again.
Cllr Anthony Molloy said: “We are talking to the council to achieve a favourable outcome on everything for the good of everybody.
“I have no doubt that we can get a resolution to get this playground opened as soon as possible.”
Cllr Molloy, who met with the playground committee on Saturday, said that upgrade works are a key issue behind the closure of the space.
“It’s been a few years since there was any sort of upgrading, and with playground likes this we need to spend money to keep things in working order.”
Cllr Molloy added he is confident that the local council can find the necessary funding to upgrade the area and improve children’s safety so it can reopen once more.
“The playground is closed for two weeks but I am confident that we can all come to a good outcome.”
