Reimagine Café – City Parks


When: Tuesday, 7 June, 1-2pm

Where: online. Register today!


The Reimagine Café is a community space for all those involved in placemaking and reimagining their built environment, meeting one Tuesday a month.

This month’s Café is themed City Parks, inviting us to look at how spaces within our cities can function as places for nature, recreation, and wellbeing.

We will hear from Deirdre Prince, Executive Landscape Architect with Dublin City Council, who will speak about the newly opened Bridgefoot Street Park in the Liberties in Dublin. We will also hear from Cork City Council’s Liam Casey about the new Marina Park along the river Lee.

If you have a project you would like to share, you are welcome to email engagement@architecturefoundation.ie

Dublin City Council has today officially opened the city’s newest park to the public. The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Alison Gilliland, unveiled a plaque this afternoon to mark the occasion, with the opening of Bridgefoot Street Park transforming what was a derelict site into a beautiful landscape of trees with grassed and planted mounds, incorporating a performance area, play spaces, allotments and a community garden. Dublin City Council and the local community collaborated in the vision, promotion, planning, design and development of the park and this collaboration will continue in the management and operation which will be key to the success of the park. Bridgefoot St Park was designed by Dermot Foley Landscape Architects in collaboration with Dublin City Council Parks, Biodiversity and Landscape Services. Photo of Bridgefoot Street Park, Dublin.
