Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Danny Collins Opens New Playground for Ballinhassig

Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Danny Collins has officially opened a new playground in Ballinhassig. The nature-inspired playground incorporates natural play spaces that are designed to adapt to their setting. Located in the heart of the village on a 2-acre community park, the project was managed by Cork County Council with input from Ballinhassig Village Association.

The Council owned site has been transformed by the very active community group to deliver a community park with play spaces and walking areas.

Since 2019, the Council has provided community grants of €41,500 for the enhancement of this valued public space, €9,000 of which has recently been awarded under the 2023 Carrigaline MD Community Fund Scheme. This is in addition to €120,000 funding for the new playground.
