On Monday 2nd October, 2017 at 11 a.m. Míchéal Mac Donncha officially opened Weaver Park, Cork Street, Dublin 8.
Weaver Park is situated in the heart of the Liberties on the site of the former Chamber Court and Weaver’s Court flat complex. Work started on this 0.6 hectare neighbourhood park in January 2017, as part of the Liberties Greening Strategy. This area of the City is attracting a mix of new residents and this neighbourhood park is a place that provides a meeting space of new and existing residents of Dublin’s exciting quarter for living and working.
The new park features a lawn for games and activities, an enclosed play area, a skateboarding terrace, benches and a pergola. Extensive landscaping has been carried out and the play areas are designed to cater for children of all ages.
The park creates a green oasis for local bio-diversity while also providing a focal point for community events and activities.
