DLR Sports Partnership and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council have announced the installation of two BoxUp 6-locker units at Kilbogget Park and Marlay Park as part of the Active Cities project. This initiative aims to reduce barriers to participation in physical activity, increase access, and enhance the choices and opportunities available for people of all ages and abilities.
Speaking about the upcoming project, Caithaoirleach Denis O’Callaghan said,
“The BoxUp initiative is a fantastic, innovative way to get more people active in our local parks. Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Parks is delighted to be part of this project as it complements other Active Cities initiatives like Map My Park and the recent Boules Courts installations.”
The BoxUp lockers, powered by solar energy, will contain a variety of sports equipment tailored to the facilities and amenities in Marlay and Kilbogget Park. These lockers can be easily accessed using a free app, making it convenient for users to borrow equipment for local sports and activities.
The installation of the BoxUp 6-locker units at Kilbogget Park and Marlay Park marks a significant step in providing accessible sports equipment to the community and promoting an active lifestyle. This initiative aligns with the goals of the Active Cities project, and the DLR Sports Partnership and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council are excited to witness the positive impact it will have on the local community.
The lockers will come on stream this Summer.
