Castleview Play Park in Gilford was officially opened last week by Lord Mayor of the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, Cllr Darryn Causby.

The development of the play park was a legacy project of the former Banbridge District Council under its play strategy and the Gilford Village Plan.

Local MLA Sydney Anderson said, “I am pleased to see that the construction of the new park has been completed.

“This project has had transformative results because an area of waste ground located between houses was turned into an enjoyable, landscaped amenity for the children in Gilford.

“Thanks must go to all involved in the development of the play park including councillor officers, those who designed and built the play park and those who provided the vital funding for this project to come to fruition.

“I hope that many children and their families will avail of and enjoy it.”
