Some of Galway City’s public playgrounds are due to get some exciting new additions over the coming months for children’s enjoyment.
The city council has said that upgrades are coming to Children’s Millenium Park, McGraths Field, Claude Toft Park and Coole Park.
These upgrades to the playgrounds are due to take place over December and January, so they should be ready when the good weather comes around again.
Children’s Millenium Park will be expanded by the addition of a sand play area, a tunnel linking the existing to the new, and a wheelchair accessible area with sand tables.
McGraths Field playground upgrade will involve installing a zip line, extending the playground, and replacing the timber fencing with galvanised, powder-coated, bow top steel.
Claude Toft Park will benefit from an inclusive ‘we go’ swing, which is accessible for users of all abilities.
And lastly, Coole Park is due to see an upgrade of its coloured surfaces, the addition of stencil games on the ground and sensory panels & seating.
