A £700,000 refurbishment project at one of Co Tyrone’s most popular visitor attractions has been officially unveiled.

Dungannon Park, which draws in over 200,000 visitors each year, boasts acres of open parkland surrounding an idyllic lake.

The redevelopment scheme at the flagship park was carried out over a two-year period, thanks to a cash injection by Mid Ulster District Council.

New facilities include the Café in the Park snack bar.

Considerable refurbishment work was also done to the campsite facilities,

They now boast the capacity to accommodate 24 touring units – an increase of 12 fully-serviced pitches.

The local authority said visitor feedback has been “very encouraging”, with campers giving Dungannon Park glowing reviews and recommendations.

Speaking as he officially opened the new facilities this week, the chairman of Mid Ulster District Council, Ulster Unionist councillor Trevor Wilson, said:“The new facilities at Dungannon Park are a great addition to an already-renowned flagship council facility.

“I am delighted the council saw the opportunity to maximise the potential of this fabulous space and implemented the £700,000 refurbishment scheme which will hopefully build on the already impressive number of visitors to the park every year.”
