Kilfennan Valley Park Greenway is to be upgraded to include the installation of new pathways, lighting, crossing points and seating.
The £549,000 investment in the Waterside area of Londonderry is being funded by the Department for Communities and Derry City and Strabane District Council to significantly enhance the existing park provision.
The Greenway project will complement the new Clooney Greenway and create a sustainable travel corridor in the heart of the Waterside. New pathway links and crossing points will be constructed at Rossmore Road, Rossdale Road and Rossdowney Road to Woodburn Urban Park.
Damian Mulholland, Director of the Department for Communities North West Development Office: “This project is a great example of partnership working between Department and the Council to deliver improvements for the local community. The investment will transform the Kilfennan Valley Park and enhance the City’s outstanding Greenway Network, enabling local residents to enjoy the park more and have a healthier active lifestyle through physical and outdoor activity.”
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Cllr John Boyle added: “This investment will be a significant valuable addition to the greenway infrastructure of the Waterside in terms of promoting healthier lifestyles and active travel.”
The scheme is expected to be completed in 2020.
