Calls to install exercise equipment at Shannon Town Park are to be explored.

Shannon Town Park opened in November 2019 at a cost of €1.5m and offered a much sought after outdoor recreation amenity for the locality while acting as a link between its residential and commercial centres.

Original plans had included exercise equipment, Cllr Donna McGettigan (SF) told a recent meeting of the Shannon Municipal District. She appealed to the local authority to find the funding to back up this commitment. “It was an original plan in the park, it would be nice to see it brought to fruition”.

She stated, “This type of outdoor exercise equipment has been successful in other areas and we have noted that they have also helped the mental health and wellbeing of those using them particularly during lockdown”.

Options around the provision of the equipment are to be investigated by the Shannon MD office, senior executive engineer Tom Mellett outlined.

Cllr Gerry Flynn (IND) seconded the motion.
