Albert College Park playground
  • Currently 4.50/5


The playground in Albert College Park is a medium-sized one: neither too big, nor too small, it is just the right size. It is divided into two: the toddler area has two multi-play units (both are safe for the youngest kids), two springers, two baby swings (personally I do not like this type, but who am I to judge?) and a spinner; while the senior area comprises two swings, a multi-play unit, a giant spider web and some climbing units. As Albert College Park is a very nice one, after or before ...
Ardgillan Demesne Regional Park playground
  • Currently 4.50/5


"Ardgillan Castle has what is called an "adventure playground" on the grounds. it's a fantastic playground, with facilities for all ages. It is really well-equipped and ranges from swings and slides for babies and toddlers, up to a zip line and rope climbing frame for older kids. The ground is rubberised, making it good in any weather. It's a large playground, and is on the top of a hill which slopes down to the irish sea. The views are unbelievable. Because it's in the grounds of a castle, ...
Balcurris Park playground
  • Currently 1.00/5


Balcurris Park playground is the playground that ceased to exist one or two years ago. Originally it could have been a nice little place for the local kids, but the photos clearly show that it is not worth going there at the moment. Hopefully, sooner or later a brand new playground will be erected in Balcurris Park as the children of Ballymun really deserve a nice place to play... ...

Ballawley Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Ballawley Park is a quiet and very well-maintained park in a beautiful residental area in Dublin 14. It is popular with dog owners, so although at first sight the place might seem secluded, it is not. There are two little playgrounds in the park: one of them is near Sandyford Road; the other one is close to Wesley Heights. Both playgrounds are suitable for toddlers and older kids as well. The playground near Sandyford Road contains a climbing structure, two springers, a multi-play unit and a ...
Belarmine playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Lovely urban playground seasoned with a pinch of nature due to its wooden play equipment. It is more suitable for toddlers than older kids, over 8 there is not much to do here. Unfortunately there are no baby or normal swings in the playground, however, there is a basket swing and a hammock near the entrance. ...
Belgrave Square playground
  • Currently 3.50/5


This cute little playground is located in the lovely and calm Belgrave Square. The tunnel and the baby swings are suitable for the youngest babies; the balancing structures (for example a unique salamander) are inviting for toddlers, whereas the slides and the climbing structures are perfect for a bit older kids, too. The playground is relatively sunny, although it has some shady spots, where it can be quite muddy after a few rainy days. The park, surrounding the playground, is not the biggest ...
Blackrock Park playground
  • Currently 3.67/5


Blackrock Park is just a few minutes' walk from the DART station, so if you have boys, they will definitely love this small playground, because playing and trainspotting simultaneously is always great fun! Although the playground is not equipped generously, it was one of our first favourites, because the toddler slide unit is absolutely safe for the least stable littlies as well and because it is never overcrowded. Close to the playground, there is a small pond with ducks and swans and the park ...


Blessington Street Basin playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The playground right next to the gorgeous Blessington street park (http://dublinfox.com/show/nature/Blessington%20Street%20Park.html) is a rather big urban playground. It is divided into: a senior and a junior area. Both areas are spacious, the only problem is that most of the playground's surface is concrete, so running around might be a bit dangerous for younger kids. Otherwise the playground is a decent one: there are many types of equipments kids can play with. In the toddler area there are ...
Bluebell Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


Bluebell Park playground is a small playground suitable for toddlers and a bit older kids too. Unfortunately there is only one baby swing and one springer, but at least the slide is safe for the youngest players as well. For older kids there are two swings (one of them is removed at present), a big multi play unit with slide and a climbing frame with monkey bars. Behind the playground there is a big grassy area to play ball games or frisbee, but as the playground is not the cleanest and tidiest ...
Booterstown Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Similarly to Blackrock Park, Booterstown Park is only a few minutes' walk from the DART station, so watching the trains whizzing by while swinging or sliding may be an extra if your kids are railway buffs. The playground itself is colourful, modern and sunny. The boat-like toddler slide unit is an absolute hit for the little ones, but there are two other slide units too for older kids. Although there are only 4 swings (plus a basket swing), as the playground is usually not overcrowded, kids ...
Boroimhe playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


This little playground is a basic, rather "simple" one surrounded by quiet housing estates. For toddlers, there are two springers, two baby swings and a roundabout swing, while the multi-play unit with the slide and the two "normal" swings are suitable for kids over 3-4. When we visited the place, on a Saturday morning, it was very quiet, but I suppose after 10-11 it gets livelier. ...
Bray Seafront playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The long-awaited playground on the promenade in Bray is a very popular one. At weekends it can be very crowded, even if the sun does not shine, but usually it is not empty on weekdays, either.

Parking ...
Brickfield Park playground
  • Currently 2.50/5


Brickfield Park is a lovely city park in Drimnagh. Unfortunately when we visited the playground, it was closed, as it had been vandalised and thus was considered dangerous by the park rangers. In spite of this, I could take a few photos of the playing equipment through the railings. The playground consists of two sections: a junior and a senior play area, separated by a low fence. ...


Bushy Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Bushy park is one of the most popular parks in South Cental Dublin and although parking near the park can be a bit tricky, it is worth the effort. The playground located close to the duck pond is spacious and has its sunny and shady spots as well. There is a helicopter and a truck to facilitate pretend play, there are several climbing structures, three slide units and many swings scattered randomly among the other playing equipment. Near the playground there is a skate park and as the park is ...
Cabinteely Park playground

There is much to do if you are with a toddler (unfortunately there are only two baby swings, but the toddler slide unit is safe and cosy, there are springers, play panels and there is a terrific sand pit with diggers and water feature as well) or if you visit the playground with an older kid, he will definitely like it too, due to the massive slide unit, the unique single point swing, the long zip wire, the various ...
Carysfort Park playground
  • Currently 5.00/5


The playground in Carysfort Park is small, but lovely. It is well-kept and tidy, just like Carysfort Park itself. In the playground, there are two baby swings, two "normal" swings, a see-saw, a multi-play unit, a climbing unit and a cool curved slide. Parking in front of the park is easy, but be careful, it is a pay & display area, do not forget to buy a parking ticket. Near the playground, there is a small pond with ducks waiting to be fed by little ...
Ceannt Fort Circles playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


To be honest, I am not quite sure if the playground in Ceannt Fort is a playground at all. It is rather a miniature play area, consisting nothing, but a small multi play unit and two play panels at the entrance. Parking near the playground is nearly impossible, so if you want to visit this place, you should definitely do it on foot. ...
Cherry Orchard playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Cherry Orchard playground is a medium-sized playground equipped with a decent amount of playing equipment. It is divided into two: a toddler and a senior area.

Chimney Park playground
  • Currently 3.33/5


Chimney Park playground is one of those few playgrounds in Dublin, which are not really suitable for children under 2-3. Of course they can always play in the sand, swing in one of the baby swings recently added or jump up and down in the puddles, but there is no playing equipment that is solely designed for them and moreover, the playground is not fenced. In spite of this, Chimney Park playground is groovy and innovative featuring playing equipment that cannot be found anywhere in the city. ...

Corkagh Demesne playground
  • Currently 5.00/5


Corkagh Demesne playground certainly has the X factor... It is one of the most spacious playgrounds in Dublin and it is for sure entertaining even for kids who are hard to please. Besides the traditional swings, springers, multi play units and climbing structures, there is some more interesting play equipment, too. The two hill slides are safe, the wobbly balancing beams are challenging and the supernova roundabout is perfect fun for all ages. The only drawback of the playground is the surface: ...
Coultry Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Coultry Park playground is one of the coolest playgrounds in the Ballymun area. The playing equipment is made of wood and the whole place has a kind of "natural atmosphere".

Crescent Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


The playground in Crescent Park is a compact one. It is not too spacious, but in return it is full of exciting playing equipment for the little ones. Agewise, it is recommended to toddlers, as apart from a multi-play unit and the two swings that can be enjoyable for preschoolers as well, everything else (the two baby swings, the spinner, the see-saw, the small multi-play unit) is more suitable for children under the age of 3-4. ...
Darndale Park playground
  • Currently 3.80/5


Darndale Park is getting a facelift! When we visited the place, back in the spring of 2013, the playground was in an awful state, but later on, enthusiastic locals decided to give back the park to the community. The play area is cleaned, the slides and the swings are repaired and the whole park is getting more and more family-friendly and safe. For more information, visit Darndale Park renewal project on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/groups/655882874450058/ Photo credit: Lance ...
Deer Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Deer Park playground is a traditional and decent playground with wooden playing equipment in the southern part of Dublin. Unfortunately there are only two baby swings, which is a pity, but if you can convince your toddler that the hammock and the basket swing are quite similar to the baby swings, it might save the day if there is a queue in front of the swings. The springers, the wobbly bridge and the slide unit are also popular with toddler visitors, whereas the different climbing structures, ...
Diamond Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


The playground located in Diamond Park is a small urban playground essentially used by the kids living in the neighbouring area. Next to the playground there is a preschool, so the place can be rather busy when the children are out to play. Our personal favourite on this playground is the squeeky merry-go-round, but my son enjoys the plain balancing beams, too. The multi play unit with two slides is suitable for kids above 3, just like the various climbing units and monkey bars. There are four ...
Donnycarney Park playground
  • Currently 2.00/5


Donnycarney Park is a bit of a mistery to me, because we visited the playground on a sunny Saturday morning and apart from a father and his two kids, we were the only one playing there at 11 am. The playground comprises a Junior and a Senior play area and it is well-equipped. In the junior section there are some springers, baby swings, a dutch disk, a play panel and a multi play unit with slides; while the senior section - among others - consists of a massive climbing net, a slide unit, some ...
Eamonn Ceannt Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5

Gannon Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The cute Gannon Park playground boasts one of the most stunning views in County Dublin. It is rather small offering only a narrow range of play equipment, but the sailboat-like multi play unit is a masterpiece.

Kylemore Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


Kylemore Park is an award-winning park in Ballyfermot. Although the design of the park is very charming and modern, its playground is not very welcoming, as it is nothing more, but a single slide (or we were blindfolded when we visited it, because we could not see anything else). Older kids might like the park, as it has a fenced all-weather football and basketball court and a kind of climbing structure as well, but most probably for toddlers the place will not be very interesting. ...

Marlay Park playground
  • Currently 5.00/5

It consists five different areas: toddler / child / adventure / teen and sensory. It is impossible to list all play equipment that can be found in this playground, so you can take it for granted that your kids will ...

Mountjoy Square Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


When we visited, Mountjoy Square Park seemed a bit sinister to me for some mysterious reasons, although I cannot really explain, why. There are two playgrounds in the park, or rather, there is a fenced junior play area and another section, where older kids can play. The junior playground is middle-sized and absolutely suitable for the youngest children: it consists of an exciting play panel, a see-saw, a multi play unit with slide, a merry-go-round, two baby swings and two springers.

Orby Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5

Pavilion playground is a small, modern, urban playground near the very centre of Dun Laoghaire. The slide is perfect for toddlers, the pirate ship is cool for pretend play, the high climbing frame in the middle is exciting for older kids and the surrounding cafes offer refreshing coffees or teas for exhausted parents. The playground is a three-minute walk from the DART station and the shopping centres and if your little one is interested in boats and ships, before or after playing you can take ...
Peoples Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The playground in People's Park is middle-sized and unfortunately quite shaded, so most of the time it is a bit muddy. It is well-equipped: there are two multi play units, four swings (two of them are baby swings), a basket swing, a play panel, a pair of talking tubes, a spinner and a wooden play tent. People's Park is a lovely urban park in Dun Laoghaire, not far from the centre, so it is a great place to take a walk, picnic or watch the fountains on a sunny ...
Phoenix Park playground
  • Currently 4.50/5


The playground located in Phoenix Park near the Visitor Centre, is one of the most popular one in Dublin. It is relatively big, modern and it is just impossible to list all the play equipment that could be found in this lovely playground. Several springers, climbing structures, multi play units with slides, talking tubes and swings are waiting for your little ones if you visit the place, not to mention the play panel and two playhouses that might come in handy in case of rain. The only problem ...
Phoenix Park 2 playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


The smaller playground located in Phoenix Park can be found behind Peoples' Garden, in the southeastern part of the park. It is divided into two sections: a junior and a senior play area. As it is not as popular as the bigger playground near the Visitor Centre, it is a bit quieter and thus might be better for toddlers. However, it seems not as well-maintained as its newer counterpart and due to the surrounding tall trees it is rather dark and damp most of the time. The greatest attraction of ...
Poole Street playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


The playground in Poole street is a medium-sized one in the middle of Dublin 8. It is more suitable for younger kids (under 6), than older ones, as most probably older children are not as impressed by a short slide, a springer, a few swings and two spinners as toddlers are. Next to the playground there is a fenced all-weather football pitch. ...
Portland Place playground
  • Currently 1.00/5


The playground at Portland Place has seen better days, that is for sure... To be honest, I could not decide if it is operational or not, as it seemed so creaky and unkept from the outside that I choose not to risk my toddler's life and we did not enter at all. The gate of the basketball pitch next to the playground is open, so playing basketball or football is possible, but as I said, the playground was not impressive at all. ...
Portmarnock Sport Leisure Centre playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


We have already visited this place, so pictures & review is coming soon... :) ...
Rathfarnham Castle Park playground
  • Currently 5.00/5


The playground located near the unique Rathfarnham Castle is similar to the one found in Phoenix Park. It is relatively spacious, modern and full of interesting and inspiring play equipment. Besides the traditional swings, springers, climbing frames and multi play units with slides, there is a massive, gigantic castle with long-long slides which is a big hit with everyone. Unfortunately, due to the tall trees found around the playground, most of the place is shaded and chilly on cold winter ...
Rathsallagh Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


The playground in Rathsallagh Park near Shanganagh Park House Community Centre is a small one. It is suitable for toddlers and older kids alike. Unfortunately when we visited the place on a weekday morning, the gate of the playground was closed, so we could not enter. The opening times were not displayed anywhere, so it is not easy to decide when to return if we want to explore the playground a bit more. Next to the playground there is a fenced football pitch. ...
Ringsend Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Ringsend park playground comprises two areas: the junior and the senior play area. The senior play area is less sophisticated, it has a climbing net unit and a climbing frame with a curved slide only, so most of the older kids choose the junior play area instead. The junior play area is relatively big, so no matter how busy the playground is, it does not seem too crowded. The small slide unit, the springers, the see-saw, the baby swings are perfect for toddlers, while the climbing structures, ...
Sallynoggin Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


Sallynoggin Park is a quiet, friendly park in the southern part of County Dublin. Its playground is relatively small, but well-equipped. For toddlers, there is a safe multi-play unit with a short slide, two baby swings (one of them is a bit dodgy), two springers, a see-saw, a merry-go-round and a pair of talking tubes, while older kids can use a long-long zip wire, a unique single-point swing and can climb up a massive spider web. (Unfortunately there is no "normal" swing on the playground.) ...
Santry Demesne playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The playground in Santry Demesne is a medium-sized one, full of interesting playing equipment. Although it takes a few minutes to reach the playground from the parking area, the playground is definitely worth visiting, as it is a lovely one with swings (there are 4 baby swings, which is great), springers, multi-play units and a see-saw, an activity wall for toddlers and a special balance-swing for older kids. At the back of the playground, there are some toilets, which is very handy, especially ...
Seagrange Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The playground in Seagrange Park is located at the northern end of the park. It is a small playground with only a few playing equipment, but in spite of this, the place is suitable for younger and older children, too. The junior area comprises four (!) baby swings, two springers, a see-saw, a basket-swing and a roundabout swing, whereas the senior section has two climbing units and a spinner. Interestingly, there is no slide in the playground, so if that is your little one's favourite, you'd ...
Sean Walsh Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


Sean Walsh Memorial park is a unique, one-of-a-kind green spot in Tallaght. The playground located between two ponds comprises two separated areas: a junior and a senior play area. The junior section is not too big, but the senior area is spacious and suitable for older kids (8-12) as well. Next to the playground, there is a sensory garden and in the park there are lovely pedestrian paths to follow. Unfortunately some parts of this gorgeous park is full of rubbish and litter, which is a shame, ...
Shangan Park playground
  • Currently 1.00/5


Well, this is the playground, that... that does not exist anymore. Although it is listed on the website of Dublin city council and there are some photos proving that once there were several playing euipment in Shangan Park, at present the place is empty, there is nothing that could be considered as a swing or a slide or whatever. In the area, there are several other playgrounds, but I reckon for the kids of Ballymun, it would be great to get back this place as well. ...
Shanganagh Park playground
  • Currently 5.00/5


The playground in Shanganagh Park is a very interesting one, as basically it is made of several small separated playgrounds. Parking beside the park apart from busy and sunny weekends is usually not difficult at all, as there are plenty of parking spaces if you come from Dublin on Dublin Road and turn left after passing the park. As regards the playground, it is suitable for toddlers and older kids alike. Most of the playing equipment is made of wood, that gives the playground a friendly, ...
Sheriff Street playground
  • Currently 1.50/5


The playground named after the notorious Sheriff street is a spacious and very well-equipped place to play in Dublin 1. It is suitable for toddlers and older kids alike and it is literally packed with play equipment. There are several swings (both baby swings and normal swings), numerous climbing structures and multi-play units with slides and it boasts a cool green car as well, that is a massive springer after all. Although the playground is full of interesting play equipment, it seems a bit ...
Smithfield Square playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


This relatively new playground in the city centre is not too big, but it is located in a very busy area, so hundreds of kids can enjoy playing there every day. Besides the modern i-play area, there are two roundabout swings, both suitable from toddlers to older kids. As the place is not fenced, smaller children have to be minded closely as the surrounding traffic can be dangerous. ...
South Dock Street playground
  • Currently 2.67/5


South Dock Street playground in the middle of Irishtown / Ringsend is a typical urban playground to keep kids occupied even if they are surrounded by more concrete than green. Although there is a small grassy area around the playground, I have never seen anyone to picnic, play ball games or frisbee there, it is usually used by dogs and their owners instead. The playground itself is a decent one: there are two baby swings and two other swings, two springers, a see-saw, two spinners, a roundabout ...
Springhill Park playground

St. Annes Park playground
  • Currently 4.67/5


Although the playground in St Anne’s Park is relatively big, due to the park’s popularity, it can be very busy on a sunny day. It is full of colourful wooden play equipment facilitating pretend play (train, horse & cart, tractor, plane, cow etc.), there are three multi play units with slides suitable for children above 2 years old, some springers, several climbing structures and a few traditional swings. What is fascinating about this playground is that it is continuously developing: the ...
St. Annes Square playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


St Anne's Square playground is a lovely little playground in a very quiet and peaceful neighbourhood in Portmarnock. It is not too big (OK, it is pretty small), but it is perfect for a bit of play in the morning or after school. It has two baby swings (at the moment only one is working), two normal swings, a see-saw and a multi-play unit with two slides. Pictures are coming ...
St. Patricks Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The playground next to St Patrick's cathedral is not a gigantic one, but it is well-kept and inviting. Essentially it is a small multi play unit with a medium-sized slide and several climbing units. Next to this structure (that is a symbolic Viking ship), there is a wobbly plate and two swings, one of which is a baby swing. The playground is not fenced. Although this play area is not the biggest one in Dublin, it is ideally located in the city center and very popular with local kids. ...
St. Stephens Green playground
  • Currently 4.33/5


This newly refurbished (2010) playground in the highly popular St Stephen’s Green is only a few minutes' walk from the shopping centre and Grafton street, so no wonder that most of the time it is very crowded and usually there is a queue in front of the baby swings. The junior and senior play areas are nicely separated, but be careful, because although the playground is fenced, the gate is usually open, so your toddler might waddle out to the park in the twinkling of an eye. What my ...
Stannaway Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The playground in Stannaway Park is one of the newest playgrounds in Dublin, it was completed in March, 2017. It is medium-sized and it is suitable for kids under 8. Unfortunately it is not fenced off within the park (the park itself is fenced), but otherwise it is a great little playground, safe for toddlers and young kids alike. Besides the usual playing equipment (springers, multi-play unit with slide, swings), there are also a few unique additions, such as the rubber belt or the ...
Stardust Memorial Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


When we last visited the playground in Stardust Memorial Park around February, it seemed a decent playground, although it was obvious that it needs a bit of renovation. Last Friday we were in the area, so we decided to check out the playground and we were horrified by what we saw. Broken and burnt swings, rusty and dangerous climbing frames and litter all over the place. It was a sad sight, to say the least. Hopefully something will be done in the very near future to save this lovely ...
Stillorgan Heath playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


This playground is definitely the brother of the one found on Patrick Doyle Road, Dublin 14. http://dublinfox.com/show/playgrounds/Patrick%20Doyle%20Road.html It is a modern, wooden playground, suitable for toddlers and older kids alike. As its surface is rather uneven, it might challenge wobblers and I think even the smaller slide is dangerous for the youngest visitors (it is not "closed" enough, they might fall easily if they lose their balance), so if your child is under two, you should ...
Swords Manor playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The playground in Swords Manor seems to be the biggest one in Swords. It is full of playing equipment helping kids to burn off their energy. The smaller multi-play unit with the slide is safe for toddlers, who might opt for the baby swings, the springers, the roundabout swing and the see-saw as well, whereas slightly older kids will love the balancing unit, the multi-play unit, the climbing structures and the swings, too. The playground is surrounded by a lovely gigantic grassy park (Ward River ...
Thornleigh playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


This little playground in Swords is slightly bigger than the one in Boroimhe and it is packed with playing equipment suitable for toddlers and bigger kids alike. Unfortunately there are no baby swings in the playground, but the see-saw might be a good compensation for the youngest visitors. ...
Tranquilla Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


The playground of Tranquilla park is quite small: its main attraction is the multi play unit with a normal and a covered / curved slide. It is suitable for toddlers over 2, just like the spinners and the standing see-saws. Unfortunately there are no baby swings (or any swings) in the playground, so unless your baby under 2 loves springers, he will not find the place amusing. However, if your kids are older than 2, they might even love this tiny playground for its tranquillity and for its unique ...
Tymon Park playground
  • Currently 3.00/5


There are three playgrounds in Tymon park. Near the Templeogue entrance, close to the ponds, there is a modern, spacious playground suitable from toddlers to 12-year-old kids. It is fenced, although the junior and the senior areas are not completely separated. Toddlers might find the play panel, the springers, the see-saw, the baby swings (there are four!), the merry-go-round and the cool multi play unit amusing, while older kids might like the bigger multi play unit, the swings and the basket ...
Tymon Park 2 playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The newly refurbished playground in Tymon Park is exciting, modern and its atmosphere is very pure and natural. It is one of the few playgrounds in Dublin that has a sand pit (and a digger of course) and it has one of the coolest zip-lines. For toddlers there are different slides, a basket swing, some baby swings and a scary tunnel, whereas for older kids there are climbing and balancing units, a few swings and of course a giant multi-play unit. The junior and senior areas are not separated and ...
Walkinstown Park playground
  • Currently 4.00/5


The new playground in Walkinstown Park is packed with different cool playing equiment. There is no separate junior and senior area, so if the place is crowded, the atmosphere can be quite chaotic for a toddler. The playground is suitable for 1 and 11-year-olds alike, but maybe it is more fun for a toddler than a teenager. Besides the usual swings, slides, climbing structures, there are several interactive boards, too on this playground, which gives the place a rather innovative and fresh touch. ...
Ward River Valley Park playground
  • Currently 0.00/5


"THE Ward River Valley playground, one of the largest and oldest playgrounds in the town will be completely removed over the next couple of months and there is no sign of a replacement despite a new playground popping up in Boroimhe recently. The beleaguered residents of west Swords who have seen themselves disenfranchised by a move of constituency and bereft of badly needed community facilities have suffered another blow with the loss of their playground. The playground failed to meet new ...
Whiteacre Crescent playground
  • Currently 5.00/5


If we lived near Whiteacre Crescent, this little playground would not be our favourite, that is for sure. It is unkept, dirty and neglected. The tags on the walls of the place are not welcoming at all and the broken glass pieces found in every corner are dangerous and disgusting. As for the playing equipment, the playground could be a decent one: there are four swings (none of them is suitable for babies), two spinners, a climbing frame, a springer and a supernova roundabout, but it is not the ...
Willie Pearse Park playground
  • Currently 5.00/5


Willie Pearse Park playground is a beautiful, newly built wooden playground in Crumlin, close to Our Lady's Children's Hospital. Its surface is covered mainly with wood chips, but some areas are grassy. The playground is suitable for toddlers and older kids alike. For the young ones there are baby swings (there are four of them!), a small slide, a spinner, two springers and of course a big sand pit with digger; for older kids there are swings, a nest swing, several balancing units and a huge ...
