A BUST OF SEAN HEUSTON IN THE VICTORIAN PEOPLE’S FLOWER GARDEN
A bust of Seán Heuston, after whom Heuston Station is named, can be found here surrounded by ornamental flower gardens. The People’s Gardens are close to the Parkgate Street entrance of the Phoenix Park, just a short stroll from the Luas and bus stops.
The Victorian People’s Flower Gardens are located between the Parkgate Street entrance, and the North Circular Road Gate entrance to the Phoenix Park.
The gardens were originally established in 1840 as the Promenade Grounds and provide an opportunity to demonstrate the beauty of Victorian horticulture.
A large ornamental lake, children’s playground, picnic areas and Victorian bedding schemes are just some of the attractions.
