HERBERT PARK A NICE PUBLIC PARK IN BALLSBRIDGE DUBLIN

Herbert Park is named after Sidney Herbert (1810-1861), the father of the Earl of Pembroke who, in 1903, offered the site to Pembroke Urban District Council for development as a public park. The famous Dublin International Trades Exhibition was held on the site in 1907, housing exhibits from the British Empire (including a complete Somalia village). Thereafter the lands were developed as a public park. The existing duck pond was constructed for the exhibition of 1907 to house the 'Canadian Waterchute', but little else remains of the original buildings.

Taken over by Dublin Corporation in 1932 the 13 hectares (32 acres), are a fine example of how a relatively small park can provide a variety of amenities such as football, tennis, boules, croquet and children's play area, while at the same time fulfilling an important conservational role in the heart of the city. Recent developments in 2007 have been the addition of a new children's playground and an all weather multi use pitch.
