Description: Feasibility Study for Corkagh, Park, Naas Road, Clondalkin, Dublin

This project was commissioned to develop a Delivery Plan for an Enhanced Visitor Experience at Corkagh Park. The Park is approx. 135 hectares of forest and landscaped open space on the outskirts of south-west Dublin adjacent to the N7 and Clondalkin Village.

The Design Team sought to identify a broad range of projects which were varied in nature and included enhanced infrastructure events, family focussed activities and improved camping facilities.

The final Feasibility Report summarised the three stages of the ‘delivery plan to enhance the visitor experience for Corkagh Park’ project, and provided a prioritised plan and implementation strategy that resolves or mitigates identified issues to help improve the diversity of activities found within Corkagh Park that can benefit future generations.

The Corkagh Park Masterplan and Delivery Plan was a holistic proposal that re-imagines an activated, re-branded recreational park experience that balances encounters related to heritage, family fun, and engaging with nature. The multiphase Masterplan and Delivery Plan outlined a three-step approach to reaching the objectives of the project, and was a result of extensive analysis and research.
