The Shanganagh Park Masterplan identifies an intense active recreation zone towards the rear of the park and the development of this facility is a priority for the park upgrade. The proposed development will increase active participation in the county through a multiple of different sports including GAA, Soccer, Baseball, Cricket, Athletics, etc. It will also encourage free play and other forms of unstructured active participation.

This project includes the development of sand based and floodlit grass pitches, a sprint track with canopy and floodlighting and a shared baseball and cricket area all with associated netting and fencing. In addition, further works are proposed to entrances and access improvements over the DART line which will also create a focal point for sitting, viewing and play. Significant additional tree planting will take place throughout the site to sequester carbon and encourage biodiversity.
