The Library Park has been awarded a Green Flag Award – a benchmark standard for the management of recreational outdoor spaces.
The design of New Ross Library Park, featuring An Clog Mór Amphitheatre, was themed on writing, knowledge, learning and time.
The design of the park reflected its location and steepness with the existing library building providing much of the inspiration.
The centre piece of the park is the amphitheatre with its intertwining 8 metre diameter sundial and performance circles. The seating and grass mounds surrounding the theatre/sundial space all radiate out in ever increasing concentric circles.
The magical parks’ garden and planted areas were designed by Ireland’s youngest ever Chelsea flower show gold medal winner, Mary Reynolds – a Wexford native.
The parks’ garden draws on three periods of writing, history and storytelling in Ireland.
