In the summer of 2013 the Upstart collective and a group of dedicated volunteers transformed a vacant Dublin site on Dominick street lower into a pop up park. For four weeks, the park became a place of creativity, nature, imagination, play and beauty for everyone. For anyone who was involved, Granby Park was more than a series of temporary structures and installations, it was a place of community, of free arts events, outdoor cinema & theatre performances, live music, educational activities.
Granby Park, is an urban, ‘pop-up’ park in a currently vacant site in Dublin’s inner city. It is made from up-cycled, recycled, donated and found material and features some of the city’s most talented artists, architects, performers, planners etc. It will have an outdoor cinema, a theatre made by kids from palettes, an education zone, exhibitions, a play area, a café, art installations, and lots, lots more!
The park opened on Thursday 22 August and will be there until 22 Sept. During this time a whole range of events will take place in the park and nearly all of them will be free. Granby Park will be open Mon-Fri from 08:00-19:00 and Sat&Sun from 10:00-19:00 and you are invited to visit it. Food & Drink will be sold on site, but alcohol is not permitted.
