The Dungannon Park is located at the heart of the community of Dungannon located at the corner of Lucknow Line and Joseph St. This park is thanks to the hard work of Dungannon Community Alliance.
Dungannon Community Alliance (DCA)
The Dungannon Community Alliance (DCA) is a collaboration of five service groups in the Dungannon area with the support of the Township of Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh (ACW). The service groups include the Dungannon Seniors Club, Dungannon YOUth Group, Dungannon Agricultural Society, Dungannon Lions Club and the Dungannon United Church. This group is working towards the development of shared resources to have a barrier free, accessible place for all people to connect to address the issue of rural isolation.
