Tymon Park was awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award this year, recognising the provision of a high quality park. Tymon Park is one of five South Dublin County Council parks to achieve this award.
Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Councillor Peter Kavanagh raised the flag on Friday the 19th November 2021 and said “ The raising of the green flag recognises and rewards the provision of high-quality parks and green spaces. It is a great achievement for SDCC Public Realm to have won such a prestigious award for Tymon Park. This award demonstrates the hard work of staff in the park in implementing the Council’s parks management plan. The park is a haven for local residents especially in this time of Covid restrictions. Without our public parks and gardens our lives would have been much further reduced and confined. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the hard work put in by park staff, and community volunteers and residents’ groups.”
The Green Flag is awarded by an Taisce and rates the management of parks by local authorities across criteria including safety, cleanliness, conservation, sustainability, and community involvement. Tymon Park is one of 84 public parks from across the country to achieve a Green Flag award in 2021. The Green Flag Award is a highly regarded international benchmark that recognises and rewards the provision of high-quality parks and green spaces, the award scheme is managed here in the Republic of Ireland by An Taisce.
