New all-weather pitch and car park opened at Ward River Valley ParkGary Ibbotson 14 Mar 2023
The new all-weather pitch at Ward River Valley Park has been officially opened.
The new pitch is part of The Ward River Regional Park Recreational Hub, which also includes new grass pitches, and LED floodlighting, and is part of the 200 acre Ward River Regional Park.
Local Fianna Fail councillor Darragh Butler said that “all sports clubs in Swords need additional playing fields so it is great to see this facility now open along with the facility at Miller’s Glen and we will continue to push for additional playing fields and for a similar project on the Swords Manor side of the valley also.”
A new car park for the park and recreational hub has also been opened by Fingal County Council.
The car park is open from 8am to 11pm weekly.
Fingal County Council says these improvements are a “foretaste” of what is to be developed at the park in the coming months.
The Ward River Regional Park Development Masterplan will be subject to a public consultation and a planning application later this year.
