Art in Parks


Art in Parks, a new guide to sculpture in Dublin City Council Parks is now available to view here.

The guide explains the story behind over thirty pieces of sculpture and has descriptions on the work, the artists and the parks where they are situated. It is hoped that with this information the experience of visiting city parks will be enhanced as well as promoting the creative arts in the city.

The guide includes the popular Oscar Wilde sculpture that is made of coloured stone from different countries as well as the more hidden abstract Adult and Child Seat located in St Catherine’s Park.

“Visiting the city’s parks offers an opportunity to experience some of Dublin’s most historic and contemporary public spaces while engaging with some of the city’s rich and exciting collection of public art. I hope this guide makes these sculptures more accessible and enjoyable to all who visit these parks” said Kieran O’ Neill, Senior Executive Landscape Architect in Dublin City Council.
