Wolfe Tone Square

A line of trees stretching to the river is the first intimation of the park beyond. An inclined grass beach, a promenade and a copse of trees are the principle elements of the scheme. The beach, a ruled surface, is for reclining and relaxation, the promenade links Abbey street and the quays with the prestinct of the church, while the trees screen the park from the busy neighouring street. The inclined edge between the beach and the promenade is formed by the existing headstones. The ground surface is similar to that of Mary street to ensure continuity. Inscribed in stone and aligned with the re-located memorial is a passage of text commemorating Wolfe Tone. The northwest corner of the park opens to Mary street, a pavilion stands at the intersection.
