The Sean Walsh Memorial Park in Tallaght, County Dublin, is an oasis at the heart of a densely populated urban area, providing a landscaped parkland, ornamental formal gardens and a recreation area for visitors.
A vital local amenity for the Tallaght community since it opened in 1989, Sean Walsh Park is the St Stephen’s Green of Tallaght in Dublin City.
An oasis at the heart of a densely-populated urban area, the park provides a landscaped parkland and recreation area for residents and visitors. The Dublin mountains form a gentle backdrop to this neighbourhood park which overlooks The Square. Ornamental formal gardens lie side by side with attractive water features such as ponds and waterfalls. Extensive tree planting allows shaded areas for relaxation, while playing pitches lie close to the local community school.
The park adjoins Old Bawn Road and provides a means of crossing to The Square via a footbridge. Pedestrian paths around the ponds allow for pleasant walks and passive recreation and this area is ideal for summer picnics. Tallaght Stadium was officially opened in May 2009 and is a purpose built, 6000 seat, state of the art football stadium located in The Sean Walsh Memorial Park.
