Park revamp planned in Lisdoonvarna

AN AMBITIOUS reimagining of the North Clare Sports and Amenity Park could see the popular facility transformed. Since 2020, there has been intensive collaborative work involving local schools, artists, clubs, businesses and organisations in the community and local catchment area in creating a new vision for the amenity. Brian Gaynor of Green Pine Consultants presented the initial draft plans to the North clare Community and stakeholders on this week, via Zoom.
“We feel these themes will be a very special development for the community of North Clare and our local areas with particular benefit in tourism, education, cultural/heritage and sports fields,” said Lisdoonvarna Fáilte Director, Councillor Joe Garrihy. “The collective and shared commitment of our groups align very much with the concept and proposal under development and we are delighted to share the planning stages with the community now at this early stage for comment, observation and input.”
Significant funding support to the tune of €210,000 has been secured towards delivering this project with a number of other submissions made to various funding streams to add to the overall pot.
Lisdoonvarna Fáilte is convening a steering group to oversee the project and will be running a 300 club draw over the period of May to September to secure local match funding to enable the best possible specification and overall project is delivered. Full details of the fundraising initiative and timelines will be announced in the next week.
The presentation is available at Lisdoonvarnafailte.ie and suggestions and ideas are  welcome.
