Celebration hails Great New Dodderside Playground

New View from the Luas just south of Milltown

FROM THE LUAS crossing the Nine Arches bridge over the Dodder just south of the Milltown stop you can see a splendid new children’s’ playground on top of the wonderful grass slope swooping down to the tree-lined river from Columbanus Road.

None of your hard cold steel frames here, but eccentric painted timber structures emerging out of mounds, all designed to safely extend young muscular skills and imaginations.

And, hey, there is a “Zip Wire”! for the under twelves to whiz along! Wow!

Supervising from the octagonal former Milltown Laundry chimney nearby is the resident Cormorant keeping a wary eye on his rival fisherman below, the elegant Heron.

Congratulations Dun Laoghaire Co Council! The kids love it.
