The area around Ellensborough has grown rapidly in recent years, but without the necessary community facilities. Now South Dublin County Council has agreed to develop a park in the community. They have published draft proposals for the park behind Ellensborough 'Kiltipper Park', including walkways, two soccer pitches, a GAA pitch, a children's playground and woodland features. The community now has a chance to comment on this draft, point out any problems or missing features, and make alternative suggestions.
What's in the plans?
