This park has lots in it and is amazing for kids up to about 10 years old. It’s a pity is is offer subject to some criminal damage from local teenagers.

The design of the park is fun and interesting. The zip wire no longer works which is disappointing. Big park with lots of equipment and separate space for younger children.

Big play park with lots for kids to do - from 8 months up. If you head towards the War memorial there is a baby change & toilets also. All free! Parking on the road is free for 1 hour.

Free play park for the kids to enjoy when visiting "Shankhill-on-Sea". Well maintained by the local Council, very clean and tidy with lots of parking to hand.

Our grand children and nieces and nephews enjoyed this park so much! The weather was cold and windy ( even for those of us from the mountains of Pennsylvania) but the park was so great the children hardly noticed. They asked to change our plans...More

Lots of different items to play on, for all different ages and abilities. Shame there are no toilet facilities nearby. Great access to parking and very close to Maud’s ice cream parlour, which is always a treat in the summer.
