A €5m scheme has been unveiled, following a part 8 public consultation process, which was completed in February for proposed enhancements and upgrades at Corkagh Park, Clondalkin, writes Rachel Cunningham.

The proposals follow on from the Corkagh Regional Park Masterplan 2020 and promises that care has been taken to ensure that all proposed elements respond to and work in harmony with the strong cultural heritage found in the park.

The enhancements will involve the construction of a new ‘hub zone’, to include a purpose-built café building with 10 public toilets, kitchen, storage, serving area and internal seating, multi-use events space with a stage and hard-standing area, soft-landscaping with formal seating areas, picnic areas, an amenity lawn, mounds, incidental play areas and planting.

St. John’s Wood Car Park will be upgraded and Green Isle Car Park will be extended, while the entrance and construction of a new footpath linking the existing car park to the Outer Ring Road will be delivered.

The Fairy Woodland Trail will have new features added, such as new seating, new pedestrian link from the lakes, the retention and the protection of existing mature trees.
