Situated in the heart of Fairview between the DART line and Tolka, this 20 hectares park is noted for its seasonal bedding displays but also has valuable playing fields, a children's playground and tree-lined walks. Originally a tidal mud flat which was used for land fill in the early 1900's, the park was developed in the late 1920's with Bye Laws formally adopted by the Corporation in 1934. The park was significantly disrupted by the recent Dublin Port Tunnel works however proposals to (restore and) enhance the disturbed areas will be carried out when tunnel works near full completion.
Across the Fairview Road is Bram Stoker Park at Marino Crescent named in memory of the writer who was born at No. 15 and which was acquired by the Corporation in the mid 1980's.
