Five years of campaigning by parents and kids in Dublin 14 has produced a massive dividend in the shape of a new playground which has opened in Milltown.
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council's Parks Department has delivered a great new play facility, after years of campaigning by local residents which involved them producing petitions, t-shirts, stickers and even a calendar that was sold in local shops.
Dargan's famous Nine Arches Viaduct on the banks of the Dodder in August
Older Kids have been enjoying a zip wire, a giant slide and the big swing, while the littler ones love the tunnel , the sea-saw and the big slide. and it makes the most of a fantastic location overlooking one of Dublin's oldest bridges across the Dodder River.
DLR's new Patrick Doyle Road Playground also offers great views of the Dublin Mountains and is a great pit stop if walking or biking along the Dodder Walk , as it is right next to a bike path that connects Milltown and Clonskeagh to Donnybrook and Rathfarnham.
It is a boon for local parents too, as it is only is a short walk from the school and to local shops in Windy Arbour Village and St Galls Gardens South. It's a stone's throw from the Church of the Miraculous Medal on Bird Avenue and also close to Mosques at Milltown and Clonskeagh .
For kids who visited the area this summer, thePlayground got top marks. "I give it ten out of ten," said Georgia, aged 9, "it's the best playground we have visited on our trip to Dublin".
The design team deserves credit for installing unusual play equipment like the zip wire, which has proved popular with parents and kids alike and for making the most of the scenic location, by providing benches and tables for parents and childminders.
It took suppliers CPCL around four months to install, and is valued at around 100,000 euro.
