Chic shopping mall offering apparel stores, art galleries & dining in an 18th-century mansion.
At Wilton Park, we’re making sure the local community has everything it needs for neighbourhood living. This is not just about convenience. We want to encourage those who work and live in the neighbourhood to stay local and enjoy what this thriving part of the city has to offer: nature and outdoor space, places to meet and socialise, and a chance to enjoy the area’s rich cultural history.
The neighbourhood will offer places to rest and relax, and to enjoy the best of nature. The Victorian park will be restored to its historic layout with new seating and landscaping, as well as a renovated fountain, while improved cycle and pedestrian paths will allow for better access to the nearby Grand Canal. Mary Lavin Place, which will be the new cultural and social centre of Wilton Park, will feature a water feature with more than 160 individually controlled jets, providing a playful interactive space for visitors.
We want Wilton Park to be a positive resource for the community. We have successfully hosted Bark in the Park in partnership with the DSPCA for our four-legged friends and their owners and we also teamed up with local yoga studio, Reformation for some outdoor Saturday morning stretching. We are planning more events of this nature so follow us on Instagram for details.
Wilton Park will be rich with new places to linger, meet, and socialise. A foodhall will bring exciting new independent food operators for lunch, dinner and evening entertainment, while a contemporary restaurant and artisan deli and bakery will offer indoor and outdoor dining spaces. More casual options will also be on hand with the juice bar at the gym, or the resident barista for takeaway coffee in the park.
Wilton Park will be a place to continue the neighbourhood’s rich creative history. At its centre will be Mary Lavin Place, the first public place in Dublin to be named after an Irish female writer. Close by will be the community bookshop, which celebrates the area’s literary past and will also be a flexible, not-for-profit community space for events. Wilton Park Studios will continue to provide studio space for local artists, in partnership with the RHA Gallery, while two new sculptures will be created for the area by leading Irish artists.
Places to get together with family and friends whatever the occasion.
