Crosshaven boosted by €40,000 outdoor sports facility
A new multi-use games area has been officially opened in Crosshaven. The ribbon was cut on the outdoor facility for young people by the Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Danny Collins.
The €40,000 games area provides basketball and soccer facilities free of charge to children and young people. The astroturf pitch and court is located in the Camden area of Crosshaven and is open seven days a week.
The project was funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media via the Sports Capital Funding Programme, and Cork County Council.
The Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Danny Collins said:
“I am delighted to launch this fantastic new outdoor project and to see it has been so enthusiastically welcomed by the Crosshaven community. The village has a fantastic playground suitable for younger children and this facility provides an outlet for older children and young people. It is so important for young people to have a free and safe space for a kickabout or play basketball and this space offers just that.”
