Eamonn Ceannt Park is named after one of the executed leaders of the 1916 Rising. It is located between Sundrive Road and Clogher Road, in Dublin City. Extending to 17 hectares, the park was developed in the 1960's and includes mature trees, an athletic track, velodrome, playing fields, tennis courts and children's playground.
Recent improvements have been the addition of an all-weather sports facility and the upgrading of the velodrome. The Lord Mayor of Dublin Councillor Emer Costello officially opened the newly upgraded cycling velodrome in July 2009. The velodrome is the only one in the country and it is used by Cycling Ireland throughout the summer months teaching the skills needed for track riding. Cycling Ireland also hold local, national and international meetings throughout the summer at the velodrome.
