Proposed Seagrange Park Playground

{mosimage}Following the successful provision of a playground in Howth last year and the agreement to provide another playground at Bayside Park, the local Area Committee has agreed to put a proposal for a playground at Seagrange Park on public display.  The location is at the north end of the park near Ss. Peter and Paul’s School.  The formal consultation notice is below.


As part of the 3 year Capital programme the County Council intends to provide playgrounds in each electoral area of the County in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

The proposed playground will be approximately 400 square metres in area   (20m x 20m) and will be equipped with play equipment suitable for children under 8 years of age only. Playground equipment will normally be of all metal construction. The playground boundary will be secured with a railing 1.35 to 1.5 metres high. The area will be surfaced in tarmac with safer surface (rubber tile, rubber wet pour, loose rubber or wood fibre) provided within the critical fall areas.

The playground is intended to serve the needs of children living locally and should not be seen as a regional facility.  Though there may be visitors from other estates when the playground opens, over the life of the programme additional playgrounds will be provided so that children will not have to travel long distances to avail of Council provided play facilities.

Fingal County Council will seek, by public tender, qualified contractors to design and construct the playgrounds including all surfacing, boundary treatment and play equipment. The provision of each playground will cost approximately €125,000. The playground will be maintained by Fingal County Council. Local community groups will be invited to assist in the inspection, supervision and maintenance of the facilities.

The attached drawing shows the location where it is proposed to provide a playground in Seagrange Estate, Baldoyle, Dublin 13.
