Lisnaskea is reasonably well served with recreational facilities The Castle Park Centre has a large hall. squash courts, meeting room, together with adjoining outdoor playing fields, a flood—lit, all weather pitch and a range of outdoor play facilities. Fermanagh District Council are currently considering the development of a Loughshore Park including a wildfowl preserve at Lough Head, and if carried out this facility could also act as an attractive passive open space resource close to the town.
The GAA have a County pitch at St Emmet’s Park and there are a number of school playing fields and local amenity and play areas within the town.
The Planning Service will seek to retain all areas of existing public and private open space within the town in their present use. Where there is pressure to develop and change the use of open space. the Planning Service will ensure its retention except where community need no longer exists and no particular amenity attaches to the land.
In consultation with Fermanagh District Council the Planning Service has zoned land at the following location to meet the town’s future recreation/open space needs. In addition play areas should be provided during the Plan period as required in association with new housing developments (see Plan Policy H3).
R1 Castle Park Centre - a O.7ha level site which is suitable for development by the District Council in conjunction with existing outdoor facilities at the Castle Park Centre.
