Shanganagh Park
Intro Text 

UPDATE: Please note that the format of the upcoming session on Saturday 21st has been changed based on community feedback from the session on Tuesday 17th. There will now be a presentation and Q&A segment with dlr staff from 2:30pm – 4:00pm, with the drop in exhibition and worksheet table continuing for the duration of the session. We would appreciate you helping us to communicate this change to local friends and neighbours.

Following a review earlier this year, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council intends to reapply for planning permission in early 2023 to proceed with the addition of an active recreation zone and accessibility improvements in Shanganagh Park.

This work is part of Phase 1 of the 2019 Masterplan for Shanganagh Park and Cemetery complex which aims to improve outdoor amenities for all Shankill residents; balancing active and passive recreation in the park while enhancing biodiversity.

The upgrades to the park will provide much needed facilities for the growing number of diverse sports clubs in the area, and will future-proof the park as Shankill and the surrounding areas continue to welcome new residents in the coming years.

We want to ensure that all members of the Shanganagh Park community are fully informed on what Phase 1 will involve and how this aligns with the longer term goals for the park as outlined in the Masterplan.

In order to keep the community fully informed, we will be holding two public information sessions on the Phase 1 implementation plans on Tuesday, January 17th from 6:30pm until 8:30pm, and Saturday, January 21st from 2pm until 5:30pm in Woodbrook College, Woodbrook, Bray, Co Wicklow, A98 AW64.

These sessions will provide a detailed outline of the planned development in Phase 1 and will give the local community an opportunity to clarify any queries they may have. We will also have activities for children and young people.

The outcomes from these sessions will inform the new planning submission from the Council in early 2023. There will be a period of statutory Part 8 public consultation following this engagement process where further observations can be made.
