A proposal for a new Urban Adventures Sports Project in Letterkenny has been approved by Donegal County Council.
The new park area will be developed in the boundaries of Bernard Mc Glinchey Town Park. It will include an outdoor stage for public events and exhibitions, a new play area for a wide range of sports and a climbing frame.
The initiative aims to engage marginalised and disadvantaged youth into Adventure Sports in an urban setting. The programme is a collaboration between Donegal Sports Partnership , Donegal County Council, Gartan Outdoor Adventure Centre and the many youth organisations both statutory and community supporting youth in Letterkenny.
The project was given the go-ahead by county councillors at today’s plenary meeting after proposed plans were put forward for public consultation in March.
Associated ancillary works in the project will include the extension of the existing path to provide suitable access, site drainage with storm water attenuation, installation of public lighting, CCTV, connection to services, soft & hard landscaping, fencing and street furniture and development related signage.
