National Play Day Celebrations at Lurgan Park and Portadown People’s Park!


Last Wednesday saw hundreds of people descend upon Lurgan Park and Portadown People’s Park to celebrate and delight in National Play Day!

Attendees got to enjoy the Belfast Playbus, climbing wall, arts and crafts, face painting, inflatables, balloon modelling as well as fun games all for free – and not even the rain could dampen their spirits!

Funded by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s Good Relations Programme, the annual event celebrates children’s right to play and aims to highlight the importance of play in their lives.

Supporting children as they move through each stage of their development, play allows children to make friends, come to terms with difficulties, follow their instincts, think and learn from others.
