Time: 10am to 4pm
Location: Farmleigh

In collaboration with The Royal Parks, London this Symposium gives a behind-the-scenes look at these magnificent parks, including St James’s Park, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park and Richmond Park. Even though the formation of Ireland’s only ‘Royal’ Deer Park commenced in 1662, Phoenix Park represents a unique natural and cultural landscape that is both a historic park and an urban park, managed by The Office of Public Works.

This contemporary international exhibition will showcase artefacts, images, maps and paintings spanning over three centuries of park history. The exhibition will focus on the following themes: -early years and formation, celebration and commemoration, people at play, military and the war years, and park management. All of London’s royal parks will be showcased alongside the Phoenix Park. The exhibition runs from 7th April to 28th May 2017 in Farmleigh Gallery.

The Symposium is free and all are welcome, however booking is essential as places are limited.
