Ebrington sits in a distinctive and central riverside location in the Waterside area of Derry-Londonderry (26 acres/10.5 hectares). Its prominent riverfront position and sloping topography affords Ebrington unrivalled views of the city.
The former parade ground, now known as Ebrington Square, has been transformed into one of the largest public event spaces on the island of Ireland. The array of remaining buildings at Ebrington reflects the evolution of the site over 170 years and is of great importance to the historic and architectural fabric of the city.
With the established Peace Bridge links and the new King Street links, the EDF proposes to integrate Ebrington more directly with both the Waterside, at Ebrington Presbyterian Church and with St. Columb’s Park. Ilex has progressed discussions with Derry City Council as to how St. Columb’s Park and Ebrington might complement and support each other.

EDF Block Plan
This Block Plan indicates the types and densities of uses proposed for Ebrington. (The use of individual buildings may vary from those shown here in line with opportunities that come forward).
The complementarity and mix of these uses are critical to the overall regeneration, and the articulation of this mix will also deliver on Ebrington’s tourism potential.
The Ebrington Development Framework incorporated feedback from a consultation process, with almost 1,800 people consulted and expert input on environment, economic and urban factors. The framework outlines how Ebrington integrates with the city, which will ultimately support net additional 1,800 jobs in the city and additional Gross Value Added (income and jobs) of £42 million.
