Musgrave Park

Musgrave Park has two bowling greens and Gaelic football, hurling and camogie pitches. The park is popular with walkers and joggers and contains a Highway to Health route. It also includes a bottle bank. We have installed public access defibrillators for park users.

History of Musgrave Park

The park opened to the public in 1924. The park is named after Sir Henry Musgrave who donated the land used to build the park.

Musgrave Park has an innovative therapy garden, which was developed with the support of several nearby schools. The garden combines different therapeutic features in one space to improve the quality of life, development and wellbeing of local residents.  A 'whispering' wall is the central focus of the garden, which is fitted with acoustic equipment and a mosaic finish to encourage sensory, stimulatory and interactive play.
