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.

Newry, Mourne and Down District Council’s Outline Business Case (OBC) for the park has now been approved by the Department for Communities and a Contract for Funding issued — opening access to £16.2 million from the Executive’s City/Growth Deal Complementary fund. The Council is also underwriting £2.4 million to deliver a 15-acre City Park as part of Phase One.

At a meeting of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council on Monday 4 December, councillors approved the funding contract.

A temporary community space at the Newry City Park site also officially opened on Monday 4 December following a recent award of £220,000 from the Department for Communities (DfC) to the Council. The funding allowed an upgrade of part of the Albert Basin site for temporary community use while work progresses on Newry City Park.

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.
