The People's Park is a stone's throw from the Viking Triangle and is a beautiful, green place to spend some relaxing time. There are many paths that meander around the park for an enjoyable and healthy walk.
The park offers a relaxing environment for strollers, joggers, skate boarders and families. There are two playgrounds in the park for different age groups as well as a skateboard park. The bandstand in the centre of the park is often used during the summer months for musical performances. The beautifully restored Park Lodge Café is a delightful spot to enjoy some light refreshments.
In 1857, in the vicinity of the courthouse, the City Council initiated a drainage scheme, diverting the St. John's River in order to create the People's Park as we know it today, which still provides a welcome retreat for the citizens of Waterford.
It's a nice place to relax on your journey of Ireland’s Ancient East.
