Le Fanu Park, in Dublin City, was named after the Irish author Sheridan Le Fanu but is known locally simply as 'the Lawns'.

Bounded by Le Fanu, Clifden and Blackditch Roads, in Dublin City, Le Fanu Park was named after the Irish author Sheridan Le Fanu but is known locally simply as 'the Lawns'. Its 17 hectares were developed in the 1960's as a soccer and GAA sports ground to cater for the burgeoning interest of a young population.

Tennis courts were added in the early 1980's and the Sean Dunne Swimming Pool in the 1970's. The southeast corner of the park was the former site of a burial ground and church dating from medieval times.
