Located in the centre of Mountjoy Square, once Dublin's premier Georgian area, and comprising 1.8 hectares, this park was originally created by the Developer of the Square, Luke Gardiner, Lord Mountjoy around 1800, as part of his grand concept which envisaged the great sweep of Gardiner Street down to the Custom House.

While the Square was upgraded in the late 1980's, its full potential as a Georgian Park must await the relocation of the existing all-weather sports area currently under active consideration by the City Council.
