This tiny park in North Dublin side can be an absolutely surprising discovery to all urban citizens as it was to myself while wandering around after a busy day.
This well hidden park around the former water reservoir – has been around since the beginning of the XIX century and is located close to the Botanical gardens and the Royal Canal Bank. I was lucky enough to discover the gates to this park and could enjoy a short walk around the lake with swans, ducks and other Irish wildlife representants. This amazing little place has a relaxing atmosphere that made me feel far away from the busy city life.
On the stone near the entrance I read a short story about the water reservoir and then continued my journey in Dublin North by visiting the Botanical Gardens, the Glasnevin cemetery, the Royal Canal and other places. If you are around – do not forget to relax in the sun like I did and watch birds that live in the park lake!
