Thought this was part of the original plans but from todays Zaminer..more Parkway fun.. First line says it all really
PLANS have been lodged with Limerick County Council for an Olympic size ice rink in the city.
The facility will be sited at the Parkway Retail Park on the Dublin Road.
Alocin Ltd, the company behind the huge project, also wants to incorporate an extensive range of other recreation facilities under the one roof and these include a bowling facility with up to 12 lanes and multimedia entertainment areas. It is also proposed to provide a huge food hall adjacent to the ice rink.
And the planning application also sets out specifications for a huge restaurant and food area, which will have up to 15 separate units.
The planning application also sets out areas which will be given over to health and leisure activities, a library and office space.
The overall floor area will cover 83,068 sq m and it will be located adjacent to the N7 at Singland.
2,169 car parking spaces will be provided in the multi-storey structure.
A temporary ice rink has been erected at Merchantâ€™s Quay over the Christmas holiday period in recent years and has been a huge success attracting thousands of visitors from the wider region.
One source said: â€œThe temporary ice rink has shown the way in that it proved there is great public appetite for ice rink skating. This is a very exciting development and the fact that it is so close to the University of Limerick campus is another great plus.â€
I await excitedly to see the announcement (after planning has been granted) that the Ice Ring is to be changed to office space
