Newry City Park
In its 15-acre site at the Albert Basin, Newry City Park will be a destination leisure space for the people of Newry and beyond.
Among the features in Phase One of the park development are changing places facilities, an inclusive play park, a sensory garden, an outdoor event space, water and urban sports areas, a plaza area for artisan markets and pop-up vending locations. These are complemented by green space, woodland areas, walking, cycling and running paths, with the park also upgrading links to Victoria Lock and the Greenway.
The Outline Business Case is currently going through the approval process for £16.2 million from the Executive’s City/Growth Deal Complementary fund with the Council agreeing to underwrite a further £2.4 million to deliver a 15-acre City Park as part of Phase One.
Currently the Council is in the process of procuring and subsequently appointing an Integrated Consultancy Team to take the project through detailed design, planning approval, contractor appointment and delivery on site through to completion by May 2027.
Work continues with our partners and stakeholders on a vibrant, attractive and inclusive park of which Newry can be proud.
