Sinn Féin Councillor Mickey Cooper has welcomed news that the final work is underway at the Brooke Park outdoor events area and are on track and will allow it to be ready for use later this year.
Colr. Cooper said the announcment was good news for the local community and added that the area will allow for events to be held in the Brooke Park location.
“This is good news for the local community and users of Brooke Park that this work has progressed.” he said
“I will be discussing what events can be held with the Derry City Council events team, representatives of CRAFT based in Rosemount and the Outer West Neighbourhood Partnership in next few weeks.
“With my help, CRAFT will also be submitting an application to Heritage Lottery Fund in next few weeks for a new heritage exhibition in the Rosemount factory.
“It’s very important we are proactive in developing infrastructure and facilities in the greater Brooke Park area in advance of the wider restoration of the main park which we expect to begin in near future.”
