Areas around county earmarked for public realm improvement works this year
A NUMBER of locations around Ballycullen, Rathfarnham, Knocklyon, and Templeogue have been earmarked for public realm improvement works this year.
The works, which will be carried out by South Dublin County Council, include bulb planting in Greenhills Park, Beechfield Park, Ballyroan Road, Ballycragh Park, Sally Park, St Enda’s Park and Rathfarnham Park.
According to the council, an additional sum of €100,000 has been provided in the revenue budget for 2022 on a once-off basis to fund bulb planting schemes.
The seven aforementioned bulb-planting schemes, along with proposals for other parts of the County, will account for that additional provision.
Other plans as part of the public improvement works scheme include the installation of seating at various locations in Ballycragh Park, and the footpaths on the park will be overlaid on an as-needed basis.
The entrance gate from the main road into the formal garden at Rathfarnham Castle will be upgraded and automated.
A natural play area will be constructed at the open space in Cypress Downs, Templeogue, while an accessible entrance from the community centre in Greentrees Park, Walkinstown, will be constructed.
Public lighting will be installed at the junction of Darglewood and Knocklyon Road, while the access pathway from the Edmondstown Road in Rathfarnham, at Moyville/Edwards Court has been earmarked for improved access and the installation of public lighting.
A roundabout planting scheme will be installed in Stocking Wood at the entrance from Stocking Avenue, Rathfarnham, while there will be improvements to the planted area in PTSB in Rathfarnham Village.
Footpaths at the Limekiln side of Tymon Park will be overlaid as necessary, as will defective sections of the footpath around the open space in the Elkwood Estate, Rathfarnham, and the foothpath through the open space in Aranleigh/Longwood, also in Rathfarnham.
This list of works, along with lists of works for the other electoral areas in South Dublin County Council, will be presented to councillors for approval at next month’s meeting of South Dublin County Council.
