Re: Re: The Opera Centre
I don’t agree that Arthur’s Quay Park is a dead Park. I go through there quite a lot and it’s well used.
There is a big problem in that the road acts as a major barrier to it. The tunnel solution is interesting, but no doubt very, very costly.
Your proposed re-location of the park is a good idea, but if there is to be building on the site of the existing park there should be a wide promenade for walkers to walk along by the river.
Given that it’s very unlikely that anything will happen in this area for a while, perhaps pressure should be brought to bear on the owners of the various disused buildings to do something with them. The old Dunnes Stores is particularly ghastly.
The knocking of Sarsfield House would be very welcome. If only it was riddled with asbestos, there might be some hope of that.
