Whiterock Community Corridor

The Client

Belfast City Council

The project, designed by WDR and RT Taggart involved the construction of a new playground, multi-use games area (MUGA), carpark & landscaped open area with gardens, seating, footpaths & lighting.

The playground has eight different types of equipment targeting children of all ages and abilities. It covers a 1km catchment area, a walking distance of 15 to 20 minutes.

The MUGA is located beside the playground and offers a facility for older children to play a range of ball games. The project aimed to have a positive impact in the area by providing new facilities, increasing community activity and participation and encouraging people to use services in and around the site.

The corridor has improved accessibility in the area by linking up the Whiterock Road to Falls Park through new pathways. It also enhances the appearance of the area, creating a more welcoming and attractive place for people to live and visit.
