St. Patrick’s Park, Dublin

Right next to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, Ireland there is a beautiful park. It is said that St. Patrick baptized the first Irish Christians here in St. Patrick’s Park, in the 5th Century A.D. He used the water from an underground river called Poddle.

St. Patrick’s Park was developed by Lord Iveagh according to a design layout by Arthur Dudgeon C.E. in 1897 and completed in 1904.

You will find a sculpture called “Liberty Bell” in St. Patrick’s Park. Vivienne Roche is the artist. It was commissioned as part of Dublin ‘Millennium’ in 1988. The Liberty Bell commemorates the ‘Liberties’ District in Dublin, which dates back to the 12th century”. It is an elongated, bronze bell about 5ft high hanging from a white frame.

The garden or the park is very well maintained. It has a children’s park inside. At the time of my visit, there was a large beautiful tricolor bed of Cosmos, white, pink, and dark pink.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
