After six years of hard toil and fund-raising by the local community, Kilcullen Community Playground finally opened last Friday, June 3.

While the facility opened at 9am, a symbolic handing over of the keys from Kildare County Council to Kilcullen Community Action group took place at 4pm. 

In an agreement with the Council, KCA is set to maintain the playground, taking care of litter as well as the opening and closing, on behalf of the community. 

The project was jointly funded by County Kildare Leader Partnership through the Rural Development Programme, Kildare County Council and the community of Kilcullen.
