Park plan for former dump in Wexford

An innovative 30-acre town park is planned for the site of a former dump in Co Wexford.

The park, to be located on the outskirts of Wexford town, will feature sculptures, quirky maze areas and a skateboard park, all set amid wildlife. It will be one of the only former landfill sites in the country to be converted into parkland, and will be similar in design to St Stephen’s Green.

Botanist and landscape designer Ted Walsh, who spent six months finalising the preliminary plan for the park, said a 12.8 acre landfill site (the former town dump) in Carcur has been set aside, one-third of which will be used as an active park.
