If you have visited Antrim Lough Shore Park recently you may have noticed some building work taking place. Exciting plans are underway to develop a nautical themed play park, including a wheelchair accessible boat. 

Speaking at the sod-cutting, the Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Paul Hamill commented, “I am pleased to see this exciting new project taking shape as the Council is investing £250,000.  The new play park will make this beautiful park even more fun for everyone as well as complementing the future plans to develop a new Gateway Visitor Centre at Antrim Lough Shore Park.”

Some elements of the new play park have been designed by school pupils from across the Borough.  Their creative ideas should be open in time for the summer holidays, as the work is expected to last for approximately 16 weeks.  Please keep an eye on social media and our website for details of when the new play park is open and ready for use.
