Tymon Park

Serving the local communities of Tallaght, Templeogue and Firhouse, Tymon Park provides opportunities for a range of outdoor active and passive activities for all age groups, including walking, jogging and participation in active sport, principally field sports. It is a popular venue for events such as tournaments, band recitals, film/television shoots, family festivals in the summer, cross-country races and circus performances.

Tymon Park Forest is designed to produce a rich and diverse woodland landscape for a total of 125 different species. It includes four stands of predominantly mature beech, with the greater proportion of the woodlands consisting of randomly grouped and intimate mixtures of predominantly broadleaf species including beech, poplar, ash, chestnut, willow, maples, sycamore and birch.

There are a number of woodland trails which include the provision of way-markers and signs to guide the visitor along, with on-site interpretation of woodland features where appropriate. Tymon Park is fortunate to have a supply of water from the River Poddle and the park features two lakes with interconnecting water features. The environment around the lakes is enhanced by a comprehensive system of pedestrian paths and bridges, making it the recreational focal point in the park.

All the water features provide a valuable habitat for up to 92 species of flora and fauna, as well as a breeding ground for the popular water-fowl.  The park traverses the M50 via a pedestrian footbridge and offers stunning views of the Dublin Mountains. You can connect from Tymon to Dodder Valley Parks via the M50 underpass.
