Review of Cavan Town Playground

Posted on | August 27, 2007 | 4 Comments

Cavan Town Playground,Cathedral Road, Cavan, Ireland

Excellent, safe playground for older children but slightly less so for toddlers.

This is the local playground when we stay with Granny and the kids have gotten great mileage out of it over the past few years. It’s relatively new, approximately 4 or 5 years old as far as I recall.

Its located on the main Cavan to Belturbet road but there’s plenty of roadside parking or you can walk to it from the town. Its fenced in with one entrance/exit so very safe once you’re there to keep track of the children.

There’s a good range of equipment. The smallies have multi-play unit comprising of a slide tower, fireman’s pole, rope suspension bridge, arch climber and steps. ┬áThere’s a fun phone, button seats, and a double twist roundabout for the more adventurous toddler. There’s a 2 seat swing set. Unfortunately this is not enclosed toddler one but the traditional swing which is more suitable for older children.

The older kids have an excellent multiplay unit which has a large range of equipment on it including enclosed slide, monkey bars, curved climber, scramble net, rock wall, loop tunnel, fireman’s pole, rope wall. There is also 4 seats under the main body of this unit which can be a handy shelter from a rain shower if you get caught unexpectantly.

There is a couple of benches. One very minor complaint with this playground is that it can be fairly littered on occasion. It would have been also preferable if a couple of toddler enclosed seat swings could have been added.

But in saying this, overall, its an excellent resource to have near Granny’s and the kids have gotten great use out of it and enjoyed it when we’ve visited.

    That sounds awful, John. I’m sorry to hear that.
    We were there during the summer so it wasn’t that bad, it sounds like things have deteriorated considerably.

    When we were there, there was plenty of parking right outside it in designated parking spots?
