Ballinclea Park is an important recreational facility in the centre of Ballinclea Heights. The potential of the Park to benefit local communities has been greatly enhanced by the demolition of the old reservoir, basic landscaping of the area, and the recent decision by the Council to zone the area as open space.In April 2006 the residents of Ballinclea Heights endorsed the installation of a proposed All Weather Court, by an overwhelming majority, at the BHRA Annual General Meeting.
Since the 1960s this space has been extensively used for social and recreational purposes by the community. It is a crucial element in the social fabric of the area.
Until recently an enclosed reservoir was located where Ballinclea Park is today. This provided an elevated play area that was extensively used as a recreation area by local children. However, there was limited potential to develop the facilities because of constraints imposed by the reservoir located a few metres below the surface.
In 1998 the reservoir was demolished. This lowered the surface and greatly added to the recreational potential of the Park.
Over the years our community has invested time and money in the upkeep and enhancement of this space
BHRA looks forward with great enthusiasm to making a major contribution to the resources required to maximise the value of the Park to local communities.
