South Dublin Parklands

Many of the playgrounds in South Dublin are in parks. There are playgrounds in Tymon Park in Tallaght, Corkagh Park in Clondalkin and Griffeen Valley Park in Lucan, to name a few.

This photo shows some children playing in the playground in Tymon Park, Tallaght. This park was opened in 1986. Due to its four ornamental lakes, it is home to many colonies of wildfowl, including mallard ducks, coot and moorhen. Swans are also a regular presence there.

This picture shows children watching a puppet show in Griffeen Valley Park in Lucan. This park offers many pleasant riverside and woodland walkways. It also contains an all-weather floodlit athletics track and hockey pitch, as well as various other sports facilities.

The parks in South Dublin are well used by the local communities, especially during South Dublin County Council's Family Days in July of each year.

Each summer, several thousand people visit parks in South Dublin and participate in organised games, events and entertainment, including funfairs like the one seen in this picture.

There are approximately 4000 acres of parkland maintained by South Dublin County Council. These lands provide invaluable amenities for the communities they serve.
