Dublin City Parks Strategy
Parks and open space are vital to the ‘liveability’ of a city. The open spaces, gardens and trees canopy, are precious assets to Dublin. They make up the living component of the city.
These spaces also provide a living link to our past, from Georgian square parks to contemporary parks with contemporary themes, such as at Father Collins' Park or Grand Canal Dock.
Parks and open spaces facilitate the life of the city, creating space for nature to live alongside man while also providing the spaces for people to rest and enjoy the city.
Now more than ever, after a period of intense urban growth and development, it is time to reflect on what makes Dublin city’s parks and landscape unique and inspiring and how they should be developed and protected in the future.
This strategy examines the resources, facilities and services that are available to residents and visitors and how they can be improved.
