New Funding to Upgrade South Green Playground

Date: 8 April 2022

Green Party TD, Steven Matthews outlined that he is “delighted to welcome the news that €15,162 has been awarded under the Play and Recreation Grant Scheme for works to upgrade South Green Playground, Arklow, Co. Wicklow. This follows meetings I had with local groups, after which I submitted a request to Wicklow County Council to renovate and improve the facilities of the playground. This investment is much-needed and will provide a safe and fun space for children in Arklow to express themselves through play and recreation.

“It is particularly welcome that the Play and Recreation Grant Scheme has prioritised projects that are accessible and inclusive for all children. This funding announcement comes after the launch of the First 5 My Little Library Initiative, to provide free books to children starting primary school in September. The Green Party is committed to implementing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child in Ireland. I look forward to further engagement with my colleague Minister Roderic O’Gorman on the enhancement of supports for children across all of Wicklow.
