Lough Muckno’s latest attraction, Wilbert’s Enchanted Garden, will keep children from the age of 2 to 16 busy for hours. The equipment and area is designed to allow children to use their imagination and keep active. There is a toddler’s area and an adventure play park for older children.
The toddlers’ playground includes a playhouse with slide, ramp and steps, 2 springing horses, a small carousel, sand-pit, a ship-wreck with ropes, nest and pole for climbing and balancing and 2 cradle swings and 2 standard swings.
The older children’s play area includes climbing poles, 2 pyramid towers with climbing nets, suspension bridge, rope bridge and spiral tunnel slide, 2 parallel zip wires for racing, a giant swing and a disc roundabout.
The playground is open each day during daylight hours and is free of charge.
Monaghan County Council secured the funding for the development through the INTERREG IVA and PEACE III cross-border programmes which are managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
