Making your Peace - Co-Design project Orchard Peace Park

Creative Ireland in partnership with Wexford County Council, the Irish Architectural Foundation and local stakeholders are working together to co-design a creative outdoor green space at the site of the Orchard Peace Park in Enniscorthy.

Located in the heart of the town, nestled in the shadow of St. Aidan’s Cathedral, the park, of 1.2 hectares, has a fully accessible path which meanders from Irish Street, through an established woodland to the entrance at the Presentation Centre. It’s the site of the UN peace memorial, honouring those who served and died on peace keeping missions and the site of the presentation nun’s graveyard. It has a labyrinth, a dandelion sculpture and landscaped hills which create a great natural outdoor play area. The park captures stunning views of the iconic Vinegar Hill and the lovely Slaney valley from its various seating and vantage points. Located next to the multi-use Presentation Arts Centre, facilities such as accessible WC and toilets are available within.

A range of partners will work together with the local community to establish how they would like to use an underdeveloped area of the Peace Park for creativity and general well-being

The legacy of this co-design project is a permanent creative space that is both relaxing engaging and a trusted outdoor space for the general public.
