Dublin’s New Pop-Up Park – Granby Park

Granby Pop-up Park, Dublin

UpStart, a non-profit voluntary arts collective, has opened up a ‘pop-up park’ on Dominic Street, over near the Rotunda hospital. You can find more info about the park at

Here is what Upstart has to say about this excíting new project;

Upstart are transforming a vacant Dublin site on Dominick street lower into Granby Park, a place of creativity, nature, imagination, play and beauty for everyone.

For four weeks, there will be free arts events, outdoor cinema & theatre performances, live music, educational activities and a pop-up café open to the public.

We are working with Dublin’s best creatives to provide the best of events, interactive art installations, lectures and workshops for all ages. All with the intention of creating a cultural pocket to replace a vacant plot in the centre of Dublin City.

For the last two years UpStart have been working on our plan to develop this new project with the help and support from number people including Dublin City Council, planners, architects, landscape architects, designers, research and education groups and the local community. Everyone has given their time and services for free and everything we do is voluntary. We have the full support of Dublin city council and will be starting the reconstruction of the site in late July 2013.

Here are some excellent images by Ciaran Cuffe of the park. You can view more images on Ciaran’s Flickr page.
