Sinn Féin councillor Kevin Campbell has welcomed the transformation of the entrances to the Creggan Play Park through positive graffiti.
Councillor Campbell said the new street art make-over has been “a breath of fresh air.”
Speaking about the facility he said: “This park was a long hard battle for the community an voluntary sector to achieve.
“The Creggan area which has a population of around 11,000 for years had nowhere for the children to play. “Today there are a number of play facilities to accommodate this.
“The entrance to this particular park was the target for a long time for unsightly and often obscene graffiti. Today it has been transformed into a welcoming entrance for children and families a like.
“Its was breath of fresh air for the area.”
Colr. Campbell praised all those involved in helping to advance the project, which he said has led to a positive enhancement of the area.
“I think a big thank you is deserved to those who secured the funding for this transformation and the artists and especially the children who designed it,” Councillor Campbell said.
