This quiet haven in a bustling metropolis provides a secret garden for local residents and visitors alike. Measuring 0.75 hectares the park is located in the heart of Dublin's north inner city, within easy walking distance of O'Connell Street. The park provides a vital green retreat for the local residents and large student population in this vibrant area of the city, where park users can relax, play, exercise and enjoy the picturesque mature trees and flower displays. The park also provides a pleasant route on the way to and from the adjacent Public Library on The North Circular Road. The on-going commitment of the Parks Service to maintain the high standard of floral displays and seasonal tree interest together with the addition of new play areas means the park is increasing in popularity among the local community.
