Brooke Park Leisure Centre car park to close

19 April 2016

Members of the public and patrons of Brooke Park Leisure Centre are advised that the Leisure Centre car park will be closed effective from the week commencing 24th April 2016.

The closure is due to the ongoing regeneration of Brooke Park and limited car parking provision will be provided at the rear of the new Contact Sports Centre.

Over the coming weeks Council would be grateful if park and leisure centre users could use alternative modes of transport when visiting the park or car share.

Parks Development Manager with Derry City and Strabane District Council, Colin Kennedy, said: “Council apologises in advance for any disruption caused while the work is being completed. We would also like to advise the public and park users that the appointed contractor Woodvale Construction Ltd will require more time on site to complete their contract.

“This is largely due to the very inclement weather experienced last winter which has had a knock on impact on the contractor’s schedule. The works programme will now extend closer to the end of June and we really appreciate the cooperation of the public in the delivery of such a major project for the city.”

Further updates on the progress of work at the site will be issued over the course of the coming months. For more information on the development go to www.derrystrabane.com/brookepark
