Historic park the wrong site for stadium

Ormeau Park

The Green Party today urged Belfast City Council not to destroy one of Belfast’s best loved green spaces Ormeau Park after the site was figured as a suitable location for a sports stadium by consultants.

Green Party Belfast spokesperson Adam McGibbon said: “I’m really hoping that public representatives on Belfast City Council will bin this very expensive report. The very idea that Ormeau Park is the best location for a stadium is ludicrous and will be strongly opposed by the Green Party.

“Ormeau Park is one of the oldest parks in Belfast and is a vital community space. It would not even be considered for a stadium had Sinn Fein and the DUP been able to get over their petty differences in relation to the Maze site. I have spoken to residents in the past and they are overwhelmingly against an Ormeau Park stadium.”
