Dublin is set to get a new public park costing €750,000 in the Liberties area of the city next year.

Known as Weaver Park, it'll be the the first park in the area in over 100 years and it's going to be placed on a vacant site owned by Dublin City Council.

The vacant site where the park will be located is between Cork Street and Chamber Street, which was previously where the Chamber Street flat complex was situated, before its demolition in 2008.

The new open green area will be divided between a lawn for games and raised lawn one for sitting and relaxing.

There will also be a terraced area, which will serve as a ‘hangout space’, along with a skateboarding zone for teens.

The public can also expect a variety of play equipment for children up to 10 years old, as well as facilities for children with disabilities.

Other proposals for the park include a picnic area, a calisthenics gym, an amphitheatre, and a several planted areas.

Construction of Weaver Park is set to begin in 2016.
