In 2015 Wexford County Council completed phase 1 of a three phase project for the provision of a new €2.5m neighbourhood park for Wexford Town.
The new landmark public park is designed to complement the quality of life for people in Wexford by providing a high quality, attractive, public open space accessible to all. It will boast an array of attractive features including picnic sites; out-door gym equipment, walking track, water features, playground, multi use events area, play spaces, wildflower meadows and art/sculpture displays.
The Park will include a series of rich, bio diverse eco-systems such as a wetland area, wild flower meadows & native woodland habitats.
The Mulcahy family
In 2016, the Mulcahy family gave a very generous donation of €200,000 to help with the construction of the park in commeration of their relative Min Ryan. Min Ryan served in the G.P.O. and Jacob's factory during the 1916 Rising.
