A significant investment in Dromore that will benefit the whole community has just been completed, with the replacement of the synthetic pitch and tennis courts at Ferris Park.
The project was undertaken by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council in partnership with the Education Authority.
The upgrading project has ensured that this important asset in Dromore is now ready to be used by the whole community and offers an excellent space where people can be active and enjoy exercise, whether in competitive sports or other leisure activities.
Dromore High School, Dromore Ladies Hockey Club, and a variety of other local clubs will be able to use the space and take advantage of the brand new, state-of-the-art facilities. In particular, the school will also be able to ensure they meet the physical educational needs of pupils as well as providing extra-curricular activities.
“We are absolutely delighted to officially open the brand new, upgraded facilities at Ferris Park,” commented Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, Councillor Paul Greenfield.
“Set in the heart of Dromore, the replacement of the synthetic pitch and the tennis courts will play a huge part in encouraging the local community to get outside and get involved in physical activity in these fantastic open spaces. And, as we come into late Spring and then Summer, the timing couldn’t be better! We hope that all residents, local clubs and the school will take great advantage of this facility now on their doorstep.”
