Facelift plan for Tim Smythe Park

Ennis Town Council has engaged a consultancy firm to prepare plans for a major facelift of Tim Smythe Park, known locally as The Fairgreen, which includes the construction of a new children’s playground.
Consultants Commane Stratton Reynolds are preparing revised drawings for the park and the town council intends to proceed to tender in mid-February, with work to upgrade and improve amenities commencing on site next April.
A pedestrian crossing will be provided at the northern end of the park leading to the relocated playground, while there will also be a separate play area for young teenagers.
The project will also include the replacement of existing exercise bars, the development of walkways and landscaping improvements.
The Fairgreen is home to several junior soccer clubs in Clare and the redevelopment plan will see the demolition and replacement of the existing dressing room block.
Minister of State Tony Killeen said that while improvement works such as the development of new playing pitches have taken place at Tim Smythe Park in recent years, there is no doubt that the works scheduled to take place next year will greatly enhance the recreational infrastructure of Ennis town.
“This project will be further complemented by the construction of a playground at The Lees Road Sports and Amenity Park. The council has confirmed to me that tenders for this project are currently being evaluated,” said the Clare Deputy.
