Draft Phoenix Park Visitor Experience Strategic Review – 2 Public Meetings


We are lucky to live in close proximity to the Phoenix Park which provides such an important amenity for recreational, sporting and leisure activities.  The Park is also home to a multitude of plant life and animal life, including a large herd of fallow deer.  

The Park is an oasis of calm in our large, busy capital city.

The OPW, Fáilte Ireland and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht have commissioned an independent review of the visitor experience in the Park.  The “Draft Phoenix Park Visitor Experience Strategic Review” was launched last week and it sets out 29 recommendations and possible changes to the Park.  This review is on display in the Visitor’s Centre in Ashtown Castle every day from 9.30am to 5.30pm until Friday 5th April. It can also be found on www.phoenixpark.ie 

Two of our local TDs have arranged public meetings.

The first will take place on Saturday 30th March 2019 at 11am in The Half Way House Pub, Ashtown.

The second will take place on Saturday 30th March 2019 at 5.30pm in St. Brigid’s GAA Club, Castleknock.

Observations and submissions on the Draft Review can be made by post to Cathy Mahon, Office of Public Works, Heritage Services, Dublin Castle, Dublin 2, D02V240 or by email to visitorpark@opw.ie 

Closing date for submissions is 6pm on Friday 12th April 2019.

Navan Road Community Council was set up in 1968 to help bring together community groups and sporting groups, so that they would have one voice when trying to get things done in the community. These days the NRCC lobbies Dublin City Council and local representatives in relation to issues such as traffic, planning and policing to name a few.
