The Westerns GFC ground in Reaghstown officially opened their brand new playground on Sunday 2nd July.
Sitauted at the site the old tennis court at the entrance of the ground, the locals on the committee responsible for the playground hired specialist contractor Kompan Ireland to install the equipment which includes playhouses, swings, slides, play structures, seesaws and more – all accompanies by soft rubber tiles and floor surfaces.
Exterior fencing and gates have been provided by Peter Landy Fencing. The locals behind the project say it will allow young children to be active and develop social skills whilst also giving parents and grandparents the opportunity to meet new people.
Much of the funding has come from Louth County Council and the government’s Town and Village Renewal Scheme, the latter of which has provided €42,500 towards the new facility.
