Located in Artane this 6.5 hectare park was developed on lands amalgamated from the public open space provisions of the three local housing estates - Whitethorn, Thorndale and Elm Mount. Construction work started in 1981 to provide for local recreational facilities such as football, athletics, tennis, basketball and children's play.
Local residents played a significant role in the original development culminating in its naming as Rockfield after old quarry excavations on the site. It was officially opened in October 1983. Additional changing pavilion completed in 2005 in partnership with Artane Beaumont F.C.
Other Information: 10 tennis courts managed in association with Rockfield Tennis Club. Attendant on duty.
