Granby Park

Transforming a vacant site into a vibrant public space and getting people of Dublin involved in it was the aim of the Granby Park project. The park, made completely out of recycled and found materials, was the place for free art events, outdoor cinema & theatre performances, live music, educational activities or a pop-up café. This successful project will be the starting example for similar projects around the world. Now, they are working on an app to help other communities build their own parks.
