Plans for the provision of two new public parks in Adamstown, Lucan, one to be called Airlie Park and the other Tandy’s Lane Park are set to commence construction this Autumn and Winter 2019, according to Fianna Fáil TD for Dublin Mid-West John Curran. Deputy Curran was commenting after receiving news from SDCC that the two large new parks in Adamstown are both at an advanced design stage and both will commence towards the end of 2019. “Airlie Park is the larger park at approximately 10.95 hectares and will contain an all-weather playing/flood-lit pitch for GAA and Soccer, a cricket ground, tennis courts and basketball courts, a teenage space, 3 play areas including a natural play area, an exercise area 56 space car parking and cycling parking, including changing rooms, storage facilities and café. Tandy’s Lane Park is at an advanced stage of planning at the moment and is due to commence this Autumn. Tandy’s Lane is a smaller neighbourhood park for passive recreation, wildlife, pathways, cycle ways and some car parking.

Overall these two new parks will be a wonderful addition to Adamstown and the wider Lucan area as a place of recreation and community involvement in sports and the provision of much needed facilities for local clubs and sports groups. Not to mention fantastic facilities for walking, running and coming together in the Adamstown Community. I will continue to follow up on the development of these local parks with the hope that delivery of these projects is in a timely manner,” concluded Deputy Curran
