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.
