Bushy Park – Picnic on a weekend

Autumn is Dublin does not have much of a difference with other seasons (other than it is getting dark earlier), but it does have some mild days. I find a perfect way to spend a day out in a good weather is to have a walk and a picnic in a park. One of my recent discoveries is the Bushy Park which is located in the southern part of the city and is reachable by bus 15 or 49 in about 15 minutes from the town.

Bushy park is full of kids on the weekend, so that it is a good place to bring your own! I saw children playing football on the field, and there are plenty of tennis courts that are an ideal place to spend a non-windy day outside. On Saturdays from 11:00 to 16:00 there is a market near the main entrance of the park that recently moved from Terenure Village and I found some really delicious fresh fish and desserts there.

The park is a good place for a picnic, I organised one last weekend for me and my friends there. But the most surprising sights that I found there, are the little lake and behind it, on the far end – a tiny waterfall, surrounded by trees. A beautiful, small (actually, not that small) park with lots of activities. Just try yourself!
