Following the committee’s decision last year to appoint Groundwork NI and Playboard for the design and procurement of play provision in 2009-2011, intitial assessments were carried out at both the above play areas; also at the Old Play Park, Kinallen.

However, the Old Play Park, Kinallen is no longer in council ownership - it is owned by the southern Education and Library Board, which is responsible for the play equipment - and the council is therefore not considering any further work there.

A consultation exercise is ongoing with the residents adjacent to each of the remaining play areas.
