Dublin has a proud heritage of parks. The City Council is very conscious of this heritage in its management of over 1,500 hectares of parks, green spaces, urban trees and the Bull Island Biosphere. Our parks are popular for many types of recreational activity and provide facilities for activities including sports, play, educational, festivals and events. Even within the heart of the City there are small oases of green space. It is our intention to identify opportunities for ‘greening’ other urban spaces to enhance biodiversity and the liveability of the City.

Our objective is to ensure that all City residents have reasonable and proximate access to quality open space, nature, play and recreational facilities. To achieve this objective we will implement an Open Space Strategy to identify deficiencies in provision and prepare a phased programme of improvements.

For those working and visiting the City we also seek to achieve excellence in horticulture and presentation of our historic parks and squares and consider opportunities for improving  visitor facilities. The decoration of the City and animation of spaces is an important role for the Parks and Landscape Services.
