To assist with the upkeep of the Castlecomer Discovery Park, a €2 parking fee per day has been introduced from last weekend for day visitors.

A new annual car parking pass will be available for frequent users of the park for €35 (approximately 35 cents per week), which includes a discount at selected craft studios, café and shops on purchase of the card.

All parking fees will contribute to the maintenance of the park’s 80 acres of woodland, fishing lakes, walking trails in addition to the development of new recreational amenities such as the recently launched Tree Top Adventure Walk and Sensory Garden – planned for summer 2013.

The Climbing Wall and Leap of Faith – delayed due to weather conditions – are now in the final stages of development and attracting great interest from all ages.
