  • The park is small, but it has a children's playground and a basketball/football court. Like the basin, this is a great place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can almost walk all the way to Phibsborough road without having to cross the road. The basin is a very welcoming 'green' space full of life and away from traffic. Local and migratory birds spend time in the basin, and neighbours walk through or soak up the sun on good days. Well looked after, specially in spring and summer months. The attached pics are from January.
  • A nice little park. Nothing really special except for a nice place to relax.
  • If youre around during lunch hour stop buy for a view , sit on the bench and enjoy your meal.
  • A very cozy place. I recommend this place to visit 😉😊
  • Lovely little park hidden away in the city. Bonus points for spotting the tortoise!
