Bradley pleased with Anderson Park improvements

1 Mins read

Work is progressing well at Anderson Park in Coleraine, according to MLA Maurice Bradley.

After numerous complaints from constituents about the poor state of the town centre play area, Bradley met with Council Chief, David Jackson, who promised that the park would be improved before the Easter holidays.

“Broken play equipment, overgrown trees and just general maintenance issues had left the park uninviting and in my view unsafe for children,” said Bradley.
“I am pleased that a refurbishment project is now well underway, which will have no impact on the Council’s future development Play Strategy. I thank Mr Jackson for his commitment and keeping his word.

“I had asked for vegetation to be cut back and I was really pleased on a visit there today that work is progressing well.

“The park already looks cleaner,” said Bradley, “and I look forward to seeing the finished product at Anderson’s Park.

“I believe that the area, given its historical significance to Coleraine during World War One should be highlighted more by Council.

“When I think of other towns nearby they have parks to be proud of – think of the People’s Park in Ballymena, it really is a flagship for the town.
“Our Council should be striving to have something like this in Coleraine, a shared space that we can all be proud of.

“I have no doubt that a modern, well-maintained play park in the centre of Coleraine will encourage more people into our town centre, this, in turn, will benefit our shops and restaurants,” concluded Bradley.
