Upgrade for Vicar Street Playground Proposed

The plan proposes to create a mini park with additional seating and planting while keeping some play features



Dublin City Council is proposing to upgrade the small playground at the corner of Vicar Street and Swift’s Alley. The plan is to enlarge the space and set out two circular spaces surrounding by planting to create a parklet.

The playground area will be defined by a low bank of timber sleepers and fencing and includes a slide, see-saw and a curved bench.  The adjoining seating area will include two curved benches set around an ornamental tree. Other tree planting is proposed, as well as mixed planted to create a restful and inviting space.

The project concentrates on the existing playground. The large kick-about area along side will remain as is, although there is a longer-term ambition to refurbish this area to create a better amenity for the area.

The parklet project is expected to be completed later this year.
