Denis Burke Park

Denis Burke Park

Project details

Re-generation project for Denis Burke Park incorporating proposals for a long-term, sustainable and viable public amenity in the center of Clonmel. Proposals prepared in conjunction with SuirCan Community Forum and included Public Consultation Process and open Public Design Workshops. Key interventions include an Amphi-theatre, Adventure Play Area, Boat Dock and Sculpture Wall.

The re-generation proposals have been designed to ensure that the Park will be safe for all, cater for diverse use, be easy to maintain, vandal-proof, flood-resistant and durable.

Proposals have been aimed at promoting biodiversity and conserving and improving ecology as far as possible and the design proposals have considered all park users, as well as park wildlife, flora and fauna.

The design has addressed the impact of flood relief works and paid due regard to the fact that the park is within the 1:100 year flood envelope and is part of the proposed flow channel of the river in such an event. All alterations and interventions have been designed to result in minimal impact on storage and the flow channel of the River Suir.
