More Tranquil Experience for Hazelbank Sensory Garden

Council extends Dog Exclusion Order to Halzelbanks Sensory Garden

The user experience at Hazelbank Park’s new sensory garden will be further enhanced with the amendment of a Dog Control Order to exclude dogs from the area, with the exception of assistance dogs.  Opened at the beginning of the summer, the fully accessible garden features a range of sensory equipment, raised beds with plants designed to stimulate the senses, a sandpit area and seating.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Billy Webb said;

“We are continually working to make our council facilities and services more accessible for those with additional needs. Sensory gardens can be a very therapeutic and calming place, helping to improve physical fitness, health and mood and extending our Dogs Exclusion Order to this sensory garden will ensure our users can enjoy a more tranquil experience in a quiet area within a popular park.”
