Herzog Park Masterplan Public Meeting Wed 13.05.2015

A public meeting has been arranged for Wednesday 13th May 2015 at 7pm at Church of The Three Patrons, Parish Centre, 52 Grosvenor Road, Dublin 6. to discuss the future development of Herzog Park, Rathgar.

Parks Services has appointed REDscape Landscape Architects to draft a master plan for the re-design of Herzog Park. Public consultation carried out last year as part of the Rathgar Village Improvement Plan (VIP) confirmed that local people felt that Herzog was underutilised and had great potential to provide a public space for village events.

At the public meeting planned for Wednesday 13th May 2015 there will be an opportunity to discuss options and possible proposals for the future of the park. A number of the issues raised during local consultation could be delivered via the redesign of Herzog Park. The clear out of the wooded area earlier this year has been successful and a DCC Biodiversity Officer is in touch with Stratford School regarding working on a biodiversity project there. The wooded area, car park and recycling area will all be included in the area scoped for redesign under the proposed plan.
