Families camp out to experience new playground – and snap up a bargain!


Playdale, in conjunction with Hawthorn Heights Limited, have completed two site makeovers to provide play facilities to a brand new community developed in Ballykelly, Northern Ireland.

Houses that made up the former Shackleton Barracks went on sale with prices starting from just £30,000 for a family home. First-time buyers had camped out all week to secure their purchases and, as a result, every single property went to one.

Playdale and Hawthorn Heights were happy to build two brand new playgrounds to ensure the children of the new estate have a safe place to play for years to come. Take a look at the pictures below to see the amazing transformations.
