2015 Drumahoe District Park - Award

14 December 2015

The Space and Place programme awarded £1m to a joint initiative between Derry City and Strabane District Council (DCSDC) and Drumahoe Community Association.

The grant will be used to support the development of Drumahoe District Park which will be located on the site of the old Faughan Valley School.

Benefiting a wide cross section of the community, the project will include a new play environment, better linkages with Drumahoe pitches as well as a wildflower meadow and walking trail along the River Faughan.

“The application process for these flagship grants was highly competitive and we recognise that all the groups who applied put a huge amount of work into their applications to the programme,” said Michael Hughes from the Space and Place programme.

“We know from our experience of previous Space and Place awards, the massively positive difference that these grants can make in communities. The consortium is delighted that these latest projects will continue to help address issues of need and for some, issues of division which fits perfectly with the ethos of the Space and Place programme,” he added.
