Invest in our parks

The government says we are going to have an ‘Outdoor Summer’. We could certainly do with a safe and enjoyable summer outside. But in our beautiful public parks in South Dublin County Council (SDCC), the bins are often overflowing, there’s few spaces to sit with your family or friends, and there’s very few toilets. They are suffering from under-investment over years - in facilities and staff to take care of them.

We need major investment in our parks to allow them to be used as quality public amenities for all - not the paltry €80,000 extra which was given by central government to SDCC in 2020. Please sign the petition to demand the following action in our parks:

  • Increase the number of bins and ensure they are regularly emptied so they can be used, and have a full clean of our parks
  • Provide accessible portable toilets immediately while permanent toilets are constructed
  • Double the number of benches and picnic tables
  • Double the number of park-rangers in South Dublin County Council from 14 to 28, to help create help create a safe, family friendly environment
  • Install outdoor gym equipment
  • Install water-fountains
  • Install improved lighting
