There is a possibility that seating could be installed in Ashington Park in the near future. At present there are no such facilities which would allow walkers to rest and enjoy the park. This has thrown up questions around the design and use of the park itself. At present there are large grass mounds on the perimeter of the park which prevents the park from being overlooked from the road. There is a feeling that the removal of these mounds would open up the park, making it more visible and therefore safer. There is little point in installing seating only to have it vandalised easily. Our playground lasted all of six months before being destroyed.
We are seeking opinions on the park and its usage. How do you feel it could be improved? We will then take these opinions to Dublin City Council. There is a poll below. Feel free to comment here or on our Facebook page.
