St Anne’s Park, Ra­heny, Dublin 5

A fun walk com­plete with a play­ground, spi­der-web and rope swing for the kids. Hunt for all the park’s fol­lies such as the An­nie Lee Bridge, Her­cu­lanean Tem­ple of Isis, St Anne’s Well, Pom­peian Wa­ter Tem­ple and Clock Tower. From the Red Sta­bles, fol­low a broad path along Chest­nut Walk un­der the cover of ash, horse chest­nut and elm trees; then later on a semi-wood­land path along the Naniken River where squir­rels, rab­bits, hedge­hogs and foxes can be spot­ted if you’re lucky. Fin­ish by walk­ing along the wide tar­mac foot­path of Main Av­enue flanked by Holm oak and Mon­terey pine trees. Au­tumn is a great time to visit, when the leaves of many de­cid­u­ous trees go var­i­ous shades of yel­low, or­ange, red and brown.
