Dublin City Council unveiled the second phase of work to reinvent St James Park. The area between Fatima Luas stop and Basin Lane has been transformed into a play and exercise area as part of the ongoing delivery of a masterplan for the linear park. 

According to Dublin City Council, the park starts from the Grand Canal at Dolphin Road to the southside of the new Children’s Hospital at Rialto and the St. James’s Hospital Campus. The revamped park provides a safe, usable amenity in the Liberties that will become integral to the local community.

Formal and informal seating have been installed, including a large communal bench which can be used as an outdoor classroom and for picnics. Shrubs and perennials have been planted in addition to the new community garden. 

Daithí de Róiste, Lord Mayor said: “What was previously an uninviting, dark thoroughfare has been reimagined into this wonderful linear park. St James Linear Park now provides safe spaces and facilities for exercise for all age groups; space to walk and cycle safely and space for communities to gather, communicate and garden.  A true neighbourhood park.”  

The final section of the park will be completed in 2024-5, when the Children’s Hospital Ireland is completed.
