Albert Basin Park Project started this petition to Newry and Mourne Council (District Development) and

The people of Newry own The Albert Basin, an unrealised gem near the city centre. It is a great location, between two waterways, at the head of Carlingford Lough, with stunning views. The Albert Basin Park Project seeks to develop this magnificent site into a much needed 15 acre green public space for the people of Newry. 

THE ALBERT BASIN PARK PROJECT'S VISION

To Prevent The Albert Dock/Middlebank area being sold off and save the area for the long-term benefit of all the people of the Newry area.

■ To create an Iconic Park/Greenway in the heart of Newry

■ To build a playground for young and old

■ To develop all-ages leisure facilities including a running/cycling track, a skatepark, improved angling and water sports facilities

■ To create a Maritime Museum that celebrates the site’s important maritime history

■ To plant a Tree-Trail containing all Native Irish Tree Species

■ To develop a tranquil oasis with a wildlife sanctuary

■ To create a communal focal point in the heart of Newry
