Near Tv have asked us to let Clontarf know that they would like to thank all the people who contributed and participated in this series. With out your knowledge, your passion and your generosity in letting us share parts of your lives this series would not have been possible. 

Please read below for details on our series with you can now view online at 

Over four short episodes we explore the tiny intimate worlds our local city parks create. Covering Father Collins Park, Saint Anne’s Park, Fairview Park and Clontarf Park. Looking in detail at these unique spaces we discover the wide range in actives, culture and business that our beloved parks provide for our community. 

Filmed elegantly over the summer months in 2013 these episodes tell the tale of many of the best parts of our lives. Summer mornings tending our allotments, afternoons whizzing about in our skate parks, evenings running routines in boot camps and football training to lazy walks observing the wildlife and smelling the roses. 

Our parks play a huge role in giving us the freedom and space to unwind, to discover, to play, to socialize and to build bonds with each other and nature. 

The four episodes look at four very different parks and explore the different parks in all their glory while looking at the lifestyles they support and encourage. 

You can expect to see profiles on: 

Skate Parks, Sustainable Energy Design, Local Football Teams, Farmers Markets, Rose Gardens, Allotments, The Red Stable Art Studios, Boot camps, Local Businesses Trading, Bull Island’s Nature Reserve, Wind Surfing and The Viking Festival. 

This series was produced to highlight and celebrate the quality of life our parks bring to our community.

This series is funded by the BAI and supported by Dublin City Council.
