Our park has been a hive of activity in recent months with our Park Project development. This will provide an ECO park, Spectator facility and floodlit community walkway. The project has been run by our club development committee with the support of Sligo Leader, sports capital, clann credo, Sligo county council, caravan park and our park trustees.

Local firm Arken were successful with the contract. You will see their team working regularly at the park.

To date progress includes:

  • new solar power system in place
  • new energy friendly training lights system well advanced
  • new fence on caravan park road in place
  • community walkway well advanced
  • new sewage and waste water system implemented
  • spectator facility including mother and changing area commenced
  • refurbishment of youth playground with edging and new wood chipping.
  • new dugout bases in place

Some pictures are shown below.

Further work will include a rain water harvesting system, solar powered scoreboard , bicycle shelter and a new waste management system.

Remember we have taken out significant loans to improve the park so we would urge you to support our 50/50 draw for less than the price of a coffee per week!

To illustrate some simple costs the wood chippings for the playground are €750 for which no grants are available. A new wire for the zip wire is €1500 again not grant aided. This is outside the cost of major parts of our project for which we have a loan of €55,000.
