Weaver Park is the first purpose built Public Park in The Liberties area in over a century; a major step forward for Dublin City Council in addressing the deficit of quality green active amenity space providing outdoor recreational opportunities for the local community of Dublin 8 and further afield.
There are a multitude of uses provided for within the park design, including grassed lawns, a terrace onto Cork St., an enclosed play area, a picnic space, a skate park, extensive seating along internal walls and perimeter zones with tree planting, mounding and play features. The central lawn accommodates small scale active and passive uses on a day to day basis but can also provide the space for larger events such as markets, parties, exhibitions and performances. Weaver Park was officially opened on the 2nd October 2017.It has to date proved to be a highly valued and much used space by all age groups.
