Based on the main Sligo Road, Tom Ruane Park Ballina is an award-winning and very impressive family friendly amenity.

The park and playground in Ballina, which overlooks the beautiful River Moy is always very well kept. A huge hit with families from North Mayo and beyond, its play equipment was recently upgraded to ensure accessibility for children of all ages and abilities, making it one of the most inclusive outdoor play facilities in Ireland.

The equipment is constructed in sustainable wood, with every conceivable type of play equipment, including a huge double slide (the best fun!), swings, bucket swings, toddler swings, a wooden beam, monkey bars, roundabout, zipline, seesaw, climbing structure and even a maze.

The park also boasts tennis courts, basketball courts and an all-weather football pitch, which makes it an ideal location for children of all ages. Pack a picnic and a football and enjoy a great day out for all the family.

Tom Ruane Park Ballina was recently named by the Irish Times as one of the 50 Best Playgrounds in Ireland – deservedly so – and every year during the Ballina Salmon Festival, Ballina’s best loved playground hosts to the biggest children’s event of the year in the town – the much-loved Teddy Bear’s Picnic.
