Visitors entering from the Grafton Street end do so through the Fusilier's Arch or "Traitors Gate" which commemorates the Royal Dublin Fusiliers who died during the Second Boer War. Other memorials of note include a Wolfe Tone statue and Famine sculpture (known by some as 'Tonehenge' on account of their stark stone design), James Joyce bust, and the Yeats Garden with its Henry Moore sculpture.
Children love feeding the ducks in the large lake which is crossed by Dublin's 'other' O'Connell Bridge. Flower beds are constantly changing with the seasons and each time you visit you'll discover a beautiful array of colours. There is also a garden for the visually impaired. In the summer, join locals, students and fellow travellers for free lunchtime concerts at the bandstand.
