Just south of Dublin’s famous Strawberry Beds and near Palmerstown village, Waterstown Park was a family farm until the 1980s. The park is covered by the Liffey Valley Special Amenity Area Order and is one of the most ecologically important parks in Dublin. Close to Farmleigh Estate and the Phoenix Park as the crow flies, it consists of eight distinct habitats including woodland, wet grassland and mature hedgerows. The park is home to 300 species of plants, animals, birds and insects.
Waterstown Park has a 5km track used for walking, jogging and cycling. Tranquil walks can be enjoyed alongside the Liffey and the 19th-century millrace in the park.
Walking/jogging, cycle track, organised park runs, river walks, wildlife viewing.
Exercise equipment, cycle track, picnic.
Please note that for operational reasons, the car parks are closed in sequence. Some car parks therefore close in advance of the official closing time. Where the closing time varies from the official closing time, the earlier time is prominently displayed at the entrance to the car park.
Free car parking available.
