Derry City & Strabane District Council

The project will see the development of a new park on the site of the old Faughan Valley School and seeks to reclaim and transform the existing derelict space for the benefit of local communities.

Derry City & Strabane District Council in partnership with Drumahoe Community Association, Waterside Neighbourhood Partnership, Tullyally Community Partnership, Education Authority Western Region, and Drumahoe Primary School collaborated on plans for the new park. 

Using a five element approach to the development of the space, new facilities will include a play environment, play garden and meeting space as well as a synthetic pitch and changing facilities. It will also feature increased access to Drumahoe pitches and a biodiversity element with a wildflower meadow and walking trail along the River Faughan.
