Why Newry needs the Albert Basin Park?
"Newry City remains the only City in Ireland that does not have a City Park."
By reclaiming this rundown area in the centre of our City and developing it into a state-of-the-art City Centre Park, Newry City will demonstrate that it is a progressive and vibrant City, willing to take the lead in urban regeneration in the 21st century.
Although Newry has a proud history of dynamic neighbourhood community organisations,it could be argued that the City as a whole needs to assert its unique identity.
A new Albert Basin Park would address this issue by creating a new shared space for all the people of Newry - regardless of background, age or ability and would reconnect the community through lifestyle, sport, arts, heritage, culture and the natural environment.
