The new-look Broughshane Play Park is now open to the public following a £150,000 makeover.

The new and improved facility - an enhancement to the existing play area on the Knockan Road -includes equipment to make it as accessible as possible.

The rejuvenation work is part of over £1.27million being invested in 17 villages in Mid and East Antrim under a renewal scheme.

The programme is funded by the council and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, with support from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

Equipment provided includes a wheelchair roundabout, a 30-metre cableway, inclusive seats added to the existing swing unit, a standing pendulum swing, a cradle nest, a four-person see-saw and a chain path.
