Dublin’s Newest Open Space: Granby Park

I’ve re-blogged my piece on Granby Park because I think the Upstart project is such a great initiative that I thought I’d give it another plug. With Culture Night coming up on 20th September, it’s worth bearing Granby Park in mind as another cultural stop on the city tour. I’m planning to make a return visit so I’ll probably be posting up another piece about Granby Park at some point.

All of the park’s family friendly amenities and attractions have been built by volunteers and use donated and re-cycled materials.
