The park now boasts a state-of-the-art play park, themed gardens, a pond area, two bridges, two grass soccer pitches, a grass multi-sports pitch catering for soccer, American Football, Gaelic Games and rugby as well as a seven-a-side 3G synthetic pitch and five-a-side multi-use games area (MUGA), both of which are floodlit.

The park has been totally replanted and there is even a brand new ampitheatre as well as a new car park catering for 62 cars.
