In March 2013 the former Thurles Town Council (Comhairle Baile Ceanntar Dhurlas) had announced the welcome news that it had at last negotiated the purchase of eight acres of land from St Patrick’s College for the provision of a new Thurles Town Park and foot bridge. With this land purchased; latter which partially bounds the east bank of the River Suir, backing onto the more recently constructed Thurles Civic & Leisure Centre, Thurles Town Councils administrators produced a preliminary design via some excellent planning work undertaken by Malachy Walsh & Partners. These proposals were later placed on public display. Following the usual tendering procedures, a large multi-disciplined group, SIAC Construction, were chosen for overseeing the construction of this new park and now connecting new foot bridge.

Billy Aronson, words. Kitty Brazelton, music. An opera for the 4th of July! STORY: An alien (INTERGALACTIC de TOCQUEVILLE or I.T.) is sent to earth to research why these colored lights emit "every time this globe hits a certain point..." Landing in a town park, her research leads IT (soprano) into chance encounters with five very individual Americans—NERD (baritone), SINGLE MOM (alto), TEENAGE REBEL (mezzo), ACTOR (tenor) and GROUNDSKEEPER (bass). A madcap tangle of wishes and misunderstandings accumulate. As the farce heats up, delightfully unexpected insights into what it means to be free—result. Fun! Collage of get-to-know-you excerpts from workshops and one fully staged outdoor production in Brooklyn's Fort Greene Park. All commissioned, developed and produced by American Opera Projects between 1999 and 2002. And directed by Grethe Barrett Holby (whose idea it was to have an opera for a holiday when everyone is off with their families). (FIREWORKS----Aronson-Brazelton-960x540.m4v)+ More details

A 3-min documentary short by Odell Hussey on Town Park. Town Park is a skate park located in West Oakland. The park is an asset to the community, providing a place for the youth to come and skate in a safe environment. Cali Am Jam, a amateur skate competition that takes San Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley and Los Angeles, beginning in May 2013. The video focuses on the event and how the community comes together to prepare for it. Cali Am Jam is a skateboard series that takes place California with events from the San Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley and Los Angeles, beginning in May 2013 Town Park was created in 2007 by local artist and arts educator Keith “K-Dub” Williams with the help, love, and support from our local skateboard community at historic De Fremery Park in West Oakland. K-Dub and the City of Oakland worked to build a “skater built” dynamic wood structure skatepark for Oakland and Bay Area youth. The goal was to create a facility that would allow our youth to stay in their own community instead of traveling to neighboring city skateparks. The site has become a destination park for many local youth and adults of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds, and has become a hub where everyone can come together to learn and showcase their skills. Town Park has hosted many amazing skateboard events, contests, and demos attracting large numbers of spectators and skaters, including pro skaters Karl Watson, Ron Allen, Corey Duffel, Walker Ryan, Theotis Beasley, and The Lizard King.+ More details
