“A little green in the middle of grey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

In the middle of all the tall grey buildings and the concrete jungle is this nice green little park. This is a great place to take a break after walking the length of Grafton Street. It has a nice little lake that is home to a few swans, so if you have younger ones this will be a nice little treat for them. The middle of the park has a nice display of flowers. They have a few rotunda structures located in the park and a few monuments to read while taking a stroll. Plenty of benches for sitting and enjoying the sun and lots of trees for hiding under during rain (the more likely situation).

“Beautiful Park for All”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

While in Dublin, we took a stroll through this beautiful park. It was bustling with everyone from babies in strollers to the elderly. The fountains and blooming flowers are enough to make you want to go home and start planting your own. Many people were enjoying their lunch or napping on the lush green grass. There are also statues of famous people throughout.
