8.2.2 Neighbourhood Parks

In addition to the Regional parks as outlined above, day to day recreational provision for local communities will be provided by a series of neighbourhood parks.

The District towns and Ferrybank are all served by town parks, which are generally in a very central location and easily accessible.  These parks provide facilities for both formal and informal recreation in a parkland environment.  In the City, neighbourhood parks were provided at Loughboy and Newpark as part of the development of these neighbourhoods. In the Breagagh Valley and Loughmacask neighbourhoods, the provision of recreational facilities is a requirement of their phased development. Provision has been made in both of these areas for open space networks, neighbourhood parks and smaller pocket parks as part of the Local Area Plans previously prepared in 2004 and 2008 (See Volume 2 Core Strategy. 

The Clover Social Centre is located in Christendom. The possible redevelopment of the overall site for sports and amenity uses, with retention of the social centre, is being explored.  ​​​​​​​

The Council will support the retention of the Clover Social Club and facilitate public use of the associated open space.
