Masterplan for Corkagh Park moves up a notch

A ‘MASTERPLAN’ to enhance the visitor experience at Corkagh Park is being progressed as part of the council’s capital programme.

The plans have been in the works since 2016 to rebrand and enhance the park as a major regional destination, with improved biodiversity, heritage, and accessibility and South Dublin County Council now intends to commence the Part 8 planning process.

The proposed masterplan for the Clondalkin park was presented to elected members at the council meeting on Monday, November 8.

Objectives of the plans include promoting health and well-being in the park, create an all-season destination for events and recreations, deliver a multi-scale events space and increase local biodiversity and heritage.

The plans were first presented to the council back in December 2019 and since then BDP Design Consultants have been appointed to progress the development to Part 8 stage. The Part 8 planning process will begin with statutory public consultation before the end of this year and the final decision will be made in early 2022.

The proposed plans for the park include a Hub Zone and Café area, play space improvement works, a fairy woodland trail, park lakes and a sports pavilion.

When the initial plans were proposed in 2019, South Dublin County Council estimated that the works will cost approximately €5.6m in total.
