BUSHY PARK IS A PUBLIC PARK IN THE TERENURE AREA OF DUBLIN
Bushy Park is a large, 20.5-hectare (51-acre),suburban public park in Terenure, Dublin, Ireland.
Although situated mainly in Terenure, and listed by the city council with that address, it stretches to the borders of Rathfarnham and Templeogue. It is across the road from Terenure College boys’ school and has several entrances. The River Dodder passes alongside it, within the Dodder Valley Linear Park, and the high wall of Bushy Park has several access points to the riverside.
There is a children’s playground, an extensive wooded area, with walks to the banks of the Dodder (with access over a footbridge to the Rathfarnham area), a woodland pond, a duck pond, and a recently reopened kiosk. In front of the duck pond is a high hill, and east of the pond is a starting point for the woodland walk, beside a small cascade. The park is a good place for birdwatching – among the species which may be seen are sparrow hawk, treecreeper and kingfisher.
