Tolka Valley Park is a popular Regional Park in the Dublin
15 area. The park is still in a relatively natural state and
consists of approx. 300 acres of grassland, wetland and some
fine mature woodland and contains a rich variety in plant
and animal life.
A community forum was set up in 2005 to coordinate, promote
and develop the park as a nature reserve. The forum allows
the local community to have a say in the design, layout and
management of the park thus insuring that local community
requirements, wishes, concerns etc. are addressed. The community
forum includes representatives from 16 local organisations
including residents associations, youth clubs, local businesses,
the local fishing clubs and several environmental groups.
The aim of the project as defined by the community forum is
"to develop and mange the Tolka Valley Park together
with the local community as a safe clean and accessible and
attractive wildlife area that can be enjoyed by all.
The Tolka Valley community forum is involved in a wide range
of activities and projects from educational programs to practical
conservation activities such as woodland management works,
river enhancement works and river clean ups.
