BARRACK Hill Town Park in Carndonagh has received the Green Flag Award 2020. This award scheme recognises and rewards well managed parks and green spaces, setting the benchmark standard for the management of recreational outdoor spaces.
Barrack Hill Town Park in Carndonagh has received the Green Flag Award 2020.
Barrack Hill Town Park is an undulating four acre multi function park within walking distance of Carndonagh. As the name suggests, historically the park was located close to the site of a former Royal Irish Constabulary barracks with its prominent aspect and commanding views of the local area.
Cllr Albert Doherty, Cathaoirleach of the Inishowen Municipal District, stated: “I'm delighted that Barrack Hill Town Park has secured the prestigious Green Flag Award 2020. This award follows on from the Council’s signing of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan which commits the Council to undertake a number of actions each year to help pollinators. The park has also been chosen to undergo a full biodiversity audit in 2020. Well done to everyone involved including the council officials, the Barrack Hill community gardeners and Carndonagh Tidy Towns committee for all their hard work in achieving this recognition for our beautiful park.”
