By Dave Simpson

Giant's Park Belfast Ltd (GPBL) has submitted a proposal of application notice (PAN) to Belfast City Council for plans for a proposed visitor attraction in Giant's Park in Belfast that would include a leisure hub and a theme park.

As reported by The Irish News, it was originally hoped that the proposed visitor attraction would cost £93 million and be completed by 2026.

However, GPBL has now said that the proposed attraction, which is planned to be located on 250 acres of land at Giant's Park and consist of four zones including the aforementioned leisure hub and theme park, will cost £180 million.
