The side gates of the Phoenix Park will close to vehicles for duration of Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions.
The Office of Public Works have confirmed, today, that following a request from An Garda Síochána, the perimeter side gates of the Phoenix Park will close to vehicular traffic for the next five weekends i.e. Saturdays and Sundays only.
This means, the gates will close as normal at 11pm on Fridays and reopen at 7am on the Mondays for the duration of the Covid-19 Level 5 restrictions.
It is my understanding that this decision was taken in the interest of public safety for users of the Phoenix Park and will be monitored by An Garda Síochána and the OPW.
The closures will impact the following gates:
- Ashtown Gate
- Cabra Gate
- North Circular Road Gate
- Islandbridge Gate
- Chapelizod Gate
- Knockmaroon Gate
Pedestrian and cycle access will be maintained at all gates. Access for vehicular traffic will be maintained through Castleknock and Parkgate Street Entrances over each of the weekends.
If you have any questions or queries about the information detailed above, please get in touch with me.
