Phoenix Park announce 7km of pedestrian and cycling lanes

Phoenix Park is promising 33% more recreational space on Chesterfield Avenue.

As Phase One of Ireland's reopening strategy gets underway, the Phoenix Park has announced that it will be maintaining some of the changes it put in place during lockdown.

While pedestrians and cyclists have continued to use the park for their daily exercise, there has been restrictions on parking in some areas. Phoenix Park has confirmed that they will create 33% more recreational space on Chesterfield Avenue by prohibiting parking, installing two new cycle lanes, and designating two other lanes as "pedestrian only."

In effect, there will be 7km more walkways and cycle-ways for pedestrians and cyclists.

Vehicular access will remain unchanged, and Upper Glen Car Park is the only parking space that will be open before 10am for anyone wishing to use the park before that time.

In a memo posted on Twitter, the park also noted that the priority hours for visitors over 70 would take place between 10am and 1pm each day, with priority parking available at Ashtown Demesne.
