Chimney Park playground
Grand Canal Square, Dublin 4
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. The hexagonal swing, the mirror wall, the water pump are all unique, but there is a traditional basketball ring and a talking tube as well near a small stage. To soften the playground's urban atmosphere, there are some palm trees in the park, too.
