This small, triangular space of about 0.3 hectares is located in the heart of Sandymount and dates from the early 1800's when it was first railed-in and laid out as a local green. The horsechestnut trees around the perimeter were planted in the 1800's by the Corbett family and the green was taken over in the 1960's by Dublin Corporation as a public park. A bust of Nobel Prize Winner W.B. Yeats, who was born at No. 5 Sandymount Avenue, is a feature of the Green.
