Diamond Park Part 8

Closed 15 Sep 2020

Opened 4 Aug 2020


Diamond Park -  Part 8

Diamond Park is proposed as a major new public open space
for the North East Inner City area and the city of Dublin. A series
of public workshops carried out over an extended time period
included interactive and engaging activities which allowed
the public to express what they wanted from a new city park.

The results from these workshops drove the design
process and are illustrated in the proposal which aims to
meet a wide range of needs expressed by members of
the public and include increased integration, permeability,
activities for all ages, accessibility and passive supervision.

A number of designated spaces emerged during the workshop
process and have been incorporated into the proposed
design. These comprise of organised games, café space,
terraced seating area, retention of existing mosaic elements,
passive recreation and formal as well as informal play.

The proposed design includes new soft landscaping of trees and
herbaceous planting, both in the park and along Gardiner Street and
Sean MacDermott Street, as well as retaining some of the park’s
rich history with a new football pitch and basketball court.
