Phoenix Park Dublin - Largest Enclosed Recreational Space - The Amazing Phoenix Park Dublin Ireland
Dating back to the Norman times - Phoenix Park (Irish: Páirc an Fhionnuisce) is an urban park in Dublin, Ireland, lying 2–4 km west of the city centre, north of the River Liffey. Its 11 km perimeter wall encloses 707 hectares (1,750 acres); it is one of the largest enclosed recreational spaces within any European capital city
The Phoenix Park in Dublin is the largest enclosed park in any capital city in Europe - adding just another item on the list one will write about the places to visit in Dublin, Ireland. This park includes large areas of grassland and tree-lined avenues, and since the 17th century, has been home to a herd of wild fallow deer.
The history of Phoenix park goes back to 1660's when it was designed and formed as a royal hunting park before it opened to the public in 1747. For those who are coming to visit Dublin and are not local people living around, Phoenix park is only a mile and a half from O'Connell street, where people usually go for shopping, checking that historical street, and at the same time passing by the different statues found on it (
This beautiful park which people could have a walk through happens to be a home to the Zoological Gardens, Áras an Uachtaráin, and Victorian flower gardens; adding a little bit importance for the place and another reason why people - especially those interested in flowers - come inside and walk through.
There are different purposes that could be done there that change according to the person heading to the park; some people visit Phoenix Park for a run, a walk, for hurling, polo, cricket, and even other reasons and this happens because it is a place considered suitable for all these different activities.
Phoenix Park is open all year round; seven days a week and 24 hours of the day. There are different gates that lead into this park; the main gates of the park at Parkgate Street and Castleknock Gate are open 24 hours, but those side gates to the park are open from 7 AM until approximately 10:45 PM.
Today, Phoenix Park is home to the President as well as the base for An Garda Siochana HQ and Dublin Zoo. There are some important facts related to the history of this park which people who are interested about visiting it should know more about, such as the Dublin Zoo found in it and which is considered the fourth oldest zoo in Europe and where there are around 400 animals from different species living in it.
The Phoenix Park might appear large and huge for some people but - not to be surprised - it was actually larger and has been downsized to its current size to make room for the Royal Hospital at Kilmainham in 1680. While walking inside Phoenix Park, one will get introduced to history through the buildings and other things that are found there, such as the Ashtown Castle which is considered the oldest building there built in the 1430's but which has been rebuilt with stones again later on.
We know that the famous historical parks, gardens, and squares are related to some famous figures that were cherished back in their days, such as the case with Merrion Square where Oscar Wilde lived for almost 26 years and which is now considered a place to visit in Dublin ( When it comes to Phoenix Park, this time it is related to Winston Churchill who lived there between the ages of two and six in the Vice Regal Lodge, which is now the Aras, who later revealed that his first coherent memory was in the park.
Most important of all is the Wellington Monument over at the Kilmainham and River Liffey edge, which is considered the largest obelisk in Europe at 203 foot tall and which was believed to be taller if the funding did not run out. This monument commemorates the victories of the Duke of Wellington and those bronze plaques which are found at the sides represent Wellington's career and are cast from cannons captured at the battle of Waterloo.
There are different events that take place inside the Phoenix park which range between races, running marathons, as well as concerts, so it is not just a place to visit and have a walk through, it is more of a place that you could attend something at.
Coming to Dublin, the capital city of Ireland, there are different things that one could actually pass by and visit. One of the most famous is the Mansion House, where the Lord Mayor of Dublin resides ( another famous landmark is the Molly Malone statue which a lot of people tend to pass by just to take a picture ( In addition to those, there is the Four Courts along the River Liffey which one could pass by ( Leinster House ( or even having a general sightseeing tour by hopping on the hop-on hop-off bus for a tour around Dublin city( Phoenix Park Dublin
