Granby Park(life)

Dublin has a new pop-up park!  Granby Park is located on Dominick Street in Dublin's North Inner City and is the brainchild of Upstart.  Funded through donations to a Fund it campaign, and designed, built and maintained entirely by volunteers, it's here only until 22nd September.  I popped in for ten minutes last Saturday after work, and ended up staying for about an hour and a half; lots going on!  There was live music in the Theatre area to enjoy; I met a few different people I knew; there's a library of interesting books; and I took many photos of the fantastic installations there.  The whole space is an homage to recycling and upcycling.  I have so much respect for all the volunteers (and funders!) involved in this project- it's a fantastic amenity and hopefully this inspires more great public art projects in the city.

Behind the knitted railing covers, you can spy the former dereliction.  And McDonalds...
