Kildare County Council opens new Castledermot Playground
Kildare County Council will open a new playground on the Fairgreen, Castledermot on Saturday 5th June 2021. The playground features 20 different types of play equipment, most of which was chosen by the local community after an extensive consultation process.
The exciting variety of play equipment includes a tube slide and multi activity unit, double zip wire, trampoline, swings including an hexagonal swing, adventure trail, sensory play panels and mud play area!
The playground was built by Gardenescapes, cost €180,000 and was funded from development levies, local property tax and a grant from the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.
Additional works included creating a new paved entrance, circulation paths and landscaping around the Fairgreen. All this work was carried out by locally based Walsh Civil Engineering at a cost of €200k and was funded from the Community Enhancement Programme and Leader funding.
Kildare County Council hopes that families and children will enjoy this facility over the bank holiday weekend and the Summer months ahead and urges people would observe Covid 19 guidelines when using the amenity.
