Car Parking

The Phoenix Park is an historic landscape of international importance and one of the largest designed landscapes in any European city.  As a natural and built historic park, enclosed over 300 years ago by a demesne wall, the Phoenix Park is unique in Ireland.  

In recent times, there has been an increase in dangerous and nuisance parking, exacerbated by commuter parking in all areas of the Park.  The Office of Public Works has the responsibility for managing the Park and have considered a number of options to try to control this problem, including clamping of vehicles and towing away.

It has been decided that an initial response will be the use of “sticky” panels which will be applied to the side back windows of cars, which are parked on double yellow lines, on junction boxes, traffic islands, footpaths or grass.
