Dublin City Council in partnership with Dublin City University are hosting an online survey to identify what roles and functions the parks fulfilled for all Dublin citizens during the COVID-19 pandemic, how these can be maintained after the pandemic and what future developments you would like to see in parks across the city.
Dublin parks have played a crucial role during the current and past COVID-19 restrictions. As “social distancing” and “self-isolation” became the new norm, and our ability to move around the city was affected by consecutive lockdowns, we were faced with a sudden and radical change in our daily routine and lifestyle. However, Dublin parks remained open, benefitting citizens of all ages for their social, physical, and psychological health.
Where I live in Stoneybatter, the Garrison Church in Arbour Hill and the Croppys Acre along the Quays have proved to be life-savers for myself, Niamh and our little man. Just as Fairview Park, Mountjoy Square and the Diamond Park on Sean McDermott Street has been so essential for North Inner City families due to the limited outdoor space available at home.
This is your opportunity to have your opinion, experiences and voice taken into account to shape the development of parks across Dublin in the coming years. If you would like to take part in this survey, please click on this link: http://bit.ly/3l3ks21.
The survey ends on March 28th next, so please don’t delay.
