How would you like to see Corkagh Park develop?

RESIDENTS are being asked to anonymously provide their views on how best to develop Corkagh Park.

Corkagh Park has been identified as an amenity with “significant tourism potential” by South Dublin County Council, who are looking for public feedback for an online survey.

The park, along with the current construction of the €2.3 million Round Tower visitor centre, and the Grand Canal Greenway, forms part of a key strategy objective for South Dublin tourism – connecting parks and greenways with heritage and arts, for an integrated tourism experience.

The local authority is currently performing a feasibility study to develop future tourism potential at the 250 acre Corkagh Park, in conjunction with Type AB Consultants.

According to the study, there are three main focal points in the park – Corkagh Demesne Farm and outbuildings, a caravan and camping park, and the Round Tower visitor centre in the village.

Residents are asked to tick a number of options on the survey, including existing services, satisfaction of services, how often they use facilities at the park, and what they would do to improve facilities at the park.

Individual responses will not be shared with South Dublin County Council or any partners or stakeholders.

Consultants carrying out the study will collate and present summary information only, and will not attribute responses directly to any individual.

This survey is for research purposes only to understand the overall profile of people visiting and located around Corkagh Park and all data captured will be anonymous.

Results will inform a multi-annual capital investment plan.

South Dublin County Council invite residents to fill out the survey online at
