Phoenix Park

The Office of Public Works has issued a draft report on the “Phoenix Park Visitor Experience” outlining 29 recommendations for the strategic development of the park as a visitor destination. 

Having grown-up beside the Phoenix Park, Mary hugely values the natural amenity of the park. Mary is committed to protecting the unique character of the Phoenix Park as a historic, natural, non-commercial public amenity for the enjoyment of generations to come.

The report is available HERE or at the Fianna Fáil Dublin Central Community Hub, 90 Dowth Avenue, Dublin 7, Mon-Fri 09.30-13.30 or at the Ashtown Visitor Center from 9.30apm to 5.30pm daily or on www.phoenixpark.ie

Deadline for observations is 6pm, May 31st, 2019 to: Cathy Mahon, Office of Public Works, Heritage Services, Dublin Castle, Dublin 2, D02 V240 or emailed to visitorpark@opw.ie .

Mary asked the OPW to extend the public consultation period and to put copies of the draft plan in local libraries but the OPW declined. The OPW is answerable to the Taoiseach and Minister.

Should Mary be elected to Dublin City Council on May 24th, Mary will put a motion to the first meeting of the Area Committee calling on the OPW to present the outcome of the consultation to the local City Councillors and the local community.
