Parks & Gardens

The Victorian People's Flower Gardens are located between the Parkgate Street entrance, and the North Circular Road Gate entrance to the Phoenix Park in Dublin

They are made up of an area of nine hectares (22 acres) and were laid out and enclosed in 1864. The gardens were originally established in 1840 as the Promenade Grounds and provide an opportunity to demonstrate the beauty of Victorian horticulture.

A large ornamental lake, children's playground, picnic areas and Victorian bedding schemes are just some of the attractions.
