Tymon Park Intergenerational Centre Design Being Finalised
South Dublin County Council’s capital budget has provided €1.29million for an Intergenerational Centre at Tymon Park.
The current concept plan develops an idea of a multi-use facility that is adaptable to a variety of purposes, such as age-friendly and community groups. There are several larger function rooms, a multi-functional community space, a coffee/tea shop with indoor and outdoor seating and an outdoor terrace sheltered by a canopy, which can provide space for out- door cinema and other events.
The landscape plan for the proposed facility ensures the building is integrated into the parkland set- ting; the landscape plan realigns the vehicular route; upgrading the walking route into the park from Wellington Road and providing an enhanced pedestrian entrance to the park; putting the emphasis on pedestrian/wheelchair access.
The preliminary design for the project is currently being finalised and, once complete, it is intended to commence the Part 8 stage in 2021.
