“Community-Led Parks

“I think we need to invest more thought and time and community into asking what could be done,” says Sophie Nicollaud, Green Party candidate for the Ballyfermot-Drimnagh LEA.

Nicollaud, the Green Party candidate, says greenery could be more integrated into the city’s landscape, footpaths and streets.

Growing fruit trees or vegetables might “give a purpose” to some of the city’s parks. Larger green spaces could be used for “some kind of co-op scheme or small-scale farming”.

“What we should be doing is having less road surfaces, less hard surfaces, so green could be everywhere,” Nicollaud said.”
