What a great spot in the centre of downtown. It's lovely and green with a few statues and memorials. We had to look to find the JFK Memorial, and finally located it. Very nice place to use as a meeting spot, or to hang out....More

Beautiful park with interesting statues & benches to sit surrounded by pubs & shops. Great place to relax & people watch. Less touristy than the Claddagh area.

We visited (un be known to us prior) on the day of the Galway v Waterford 2017 Hurling championship so the place was buzzing with families and fans. Great atmosphere
