Fianna Fail Local Election Candidate, Niall Keady has welcomed the opening of the newest public amenity in Fingal at its official launch last week. Rogerstown Park, is located on the site of the former Balleally Landfill between Lusk and Rush and was opened last weekend by the Mayor of Fingal. Those at the opening, which took place in the upper section of the new park, were able to enjoy spectacular views of the North Dublin coastline.
Still under development, the park is the latest in a long line of amenities available to the people of Fingal and their visitors including Malahide Castle, Swords Castle, Ardgillan Castle and Newbridge House. It will be open to the public on a phased basis on Saturdays from 9.30am to 5.30pm for the remainder of 2019.
Plans to address accessibility from Rush and Lusk will also be addressed and Rogerstown Park will be included in an overall Estuary Plan with possible links across the Estuary to Donabate being considered.
According to Niall Keady, “the new park at Rogerstown is the latest public amenity in our locality ensuring that the people of Fingal have no shortage of beautiful and remarkable examples of our heritage. They have been imaginatively revived and designed by Fingal County Council in the modern day to provide music and entertainment as well as to demonstrate the artistry and ingenuity of our people. I look forward to Rogerstown’s further development.”
