Dismay as playground in Ashford is closed

The playground in Ashford has been closed over the weekend.

A lock and notice has been placed at the entrance gate, the notice reads “This property is privately owned, it has been used for the last number of years based on the goodwill of the Stokes family, who have unfortunately been forced into a position whereby they have to close the park for the foreseeable future.”

Senator Patrick Casey said this morning “This has come as a shock to the community and the users of the park, no one had any knowledge as to why this has happened and can’t be allowed to happen.

There is a 30 year lease in place for this park and this must be enforced, I will find out the facts get this resolved as soon as possible.”
