• The Parks and Gardens of Dublin

Coming SOON!

Ireland’s maritime climate combined with its history of demesnes has provided important gardens which are rich in artistic heritage as well as plant collections from around the world. This book is an account of the history and development of over 120 parks and gardens in Dublin, each of which has an interesting story. They include the largest park, the Phoenix Park, to the smallest pocket park around the statue of Anne Devlin in Rathfarnham Village. Dublin has a proud history in the development of public parks, something which was celebrated with a World Parks Congress in 2007. Its managers are in tune with global trends and actively participate in the World Urban Parks organisation which means that Dublin’s parks are modern in style and also retain their heritage characteristics.
