The call comes before an important vote in the Council chamber.



Speaking to Newry Times, Ms Coade said, “The development of a 15-acre city centre park in Newry is important now more than ever.

“Following a successful vaccination programme and getting past Covid 19 it is important that we aim to rebuild our society as best we can.

“The development of a city centre park at the Albert Basin site in Newry will not only help the local economy.

“It will be important in regards to mental health,” she insisted.

“It is well researched that green spaces can help with mental health allowing the public to use the facility for walking, cycling or sitting in the park and relaxing.



“At Monday’s Newry, Mourne and Down District Council meeting it will be discussed by the local council about funding the park following a motion put forward by Councillor Malone and my colleague Councillor Brown.

“It is important that if successfully passed the council then commits to this development following motions from councillors in 2017 and 2020 asking this council’s firm commitment albeit, with no sod cut yet or any developments regarding the issue.

She added, “It is important that council officials act soon and make 2021 the year we finally see this park get off the ground.”
