Welcome to our site!


The ‘Blackrock Playground Project’ was started by a voluntary group of local residents who have a shared aim in securing a playground for the Blackrock Village area.

Our local area is populated by hundreds of young families and the village centre attracts thousands of visitors from across the city and county each year to our weekly farmers market on Sundays. To our mind, a dedicated play area is the outstanding feature to fully establish Blackrock village as a focal point for the surrounding community, ensuring the availability of amenities for all generations of residents.

The total cost if the playground development has been priced at €120,000 and this will need to be sourced through local funding.

How can you help?

Given the very high fundraising target, our success is dependent on corporate sponsorship in the first instance. Once a firm foundation of sponsorship has been received, we will look to the local community to support us in reaching our final target.

If you are a business owner or have responsibility for Corporate Social Responsibility in your organization and would like to help us to succeed in achieving this long-awaited community amenity, please contact us via the contact form on our website, our Facebook page, Instagram or Twitter (all linked at the top of the page).

If you have a fundraising event or feel you can contribute to the plan in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us!
