Wicklow Town Council and Wicklow County Council are currently working together to procure and finance a children’s playground at the Murrough in Wicklow Town.
If successful the playground will be located adjacent to the new skatepark and outdoor gym.
Work on the skatepark and adult gym is due to commence on site in January 2014 following the recent award of the contract to Spraoi Linn.
The Wicklow Skatepark fundraising committee are currently halfway to their €10,000 goal which must be met by November 30.
“I am delighted to confirm that Wicklow Town Council and Wicklow Co Council will be providing a playground on the Murrough,” said Wicklow mayor Malcolm Earls.
“What is the most important element of this is that funding is already in place. This another great amenity for the town in addition to the outdoor gym and the skatepark.”
