Printer-friendly version
The Lord Mayor Oisín Quinn launched a Conservation and Management Plan for Merrion Square Park at the Irish Architectural Archive, Merrion Square, yesterday.
 
The Plan is a comprehensive study of the historical development of the ‘garden’ of Merrion Square from its beginning as a private garden to being one of the most important public parks and spaces in our City today.
 
“The focus of the Merrion Square Park Conservation Study is on the conservation, preservation, protection and management of this wonderful Square at the heart of the South Georgian Quarter. Many challenges lie ahead including maintaining a high level of service to the many visitors to the park but there are also many exciting new possibilities” said the Lord Mayor.
 
The Plan recommends how the historical integrity of the Park can best be conserved for the future and considers what future changes would be appropriate to interpret the heritage of this wonderful Square and also to accommodate first class visitor facilities.
