City Park for Newry ‘a key issue for Sinn Féin’

Sinn Féin Newry Mourne & Down Council Group Leader, Cllr Michael Ruane has said that the delivery of a City Park for Newry continues to be a key issue for Sinn Féin.

Speaking to Newry Times, he stated, “The delivery of a City Park for Newry continues to be one of the key issues for Sinn Fein in the Council’s future plans.



“Our elected representatives are committed to providing an effective level of leisure and recreation opportunities throughout this Council area and ensuring that those facilities are accessible to the public.

“The creation of a fully resourced Newry City Park is viewed by Sinn Féin as a key element in the important  area of urban regeneration,” he insisted.

“A fully resourced, easily accessible natural Park area would facilitate and encourage healthy lifestyles and emotional wellbeing of all, in particular the most vulnerable within our communities.



“It would also contribute to the social and economic wellbeing of the District.

Ruane added, “We believe that there is a cross-party support for the delivery of a City Park in Newry and are sure that working together with elected representatives, Council Officers, all stakeholders and potential funding agencies, the vision for a City Park will be realised.”

    Albert basin is literally the heart of Newry City. Give it life and it could help revitalise the entire town area.

    Would eventually like to see the back of the Arts Centre / Sugar Island Arcade redeveloped with a small pedestrian crossing over the canal. Also a crossing at the bus station taking you across to the Old Creamery Area.

    Another waste is the old Gallows behind the Northern Bank and Bank Bar. It a hidden gem and is steeped in history.

    Newry has the potential to attract tourism to do much more than shopping. Good to see the Armaghdown will be serving up 1575 whiskey soon.
