Mayor of South Dublin Mark Ward has called on the Council to provide a substantial car park in Collinstown Park. Mayor Ward had a motion passed calling for this to happen in line with the proposed community infrastructure going into the park. Collinstown will be getting a new play space, a teen space and is included in the Councils pavilion programme. Mayor Ward said: “Collinstown Park is a wonderful amenity for the people of North Clondalkin. It is currently used by walkers, dog owners and local football teams. There is a high usage of the park already and this has led to some parking problems in adjoining estates and along the Collinstown Road” “The park is in line for some much needed and deserved community infrastructure. I recently secured addition capital that will see a large public play space in the park. This will be ideal for families with young children to use”

“Collinstown Park is also in line to get a teenage play space. This will see a multi-use area in the park that includes Wi-Fi so teenagers can have a safe place to meet with their friends” “I have also been working very closely with the Council to have Collinstown Park included on the pavilion programme and is on the recent Sports Capital Grant application. This pavilion will have a number of changing rooms, showers and meeting rooms to be used by sports clubs that use the park. This is something the area is crying out for for a long time.” “The North Clondalkin Library is due to open its doors later this year and is much welcome, however this is close to Collinstown Park and will also increase the pressure on parking around the park” “I am delighted with all these developments in the park and as someone who uses it regularly as I train for my next Dublin Marathon I welcome them wholeheartedly” “However it is essential that a car park is built in the park as the use of the park is going to grow with the development of all this community infrastructure. I was happy with the response to my motion that a car park will be considered subject to funding. I will be doing everything in my power to secure this funding”
