Ireland’s first wholly sustainable park opened in May 2009. The park is located in the heart of the 'North Fringe '- an area in the northeast of Dublin containing the new residential areas of Clongriffin and Belmayne. The park is accessible by car and lies beside the Hole in the Wall road in Donaghmede, or alternatively by bus (Number 15) and by train to Clongriffin station.
The park extends to 26 hectares and was named after a much respected local parish priest who was instrumental in its original acquisition for development as a public park. Facilities include a skate park, fitness trail, playgrounds, sports fields, ornamental lake and windturbines. Click here for more information on Fr.Collins Park.
