The public in Galway City are being invited to have their say on how the city’s parks, woodlands, and beaches can be improved.

Galway City Council is currently developing a Green Spaces Strategy, which will be used to guide decisions around new playgrounds and outdoor facilities, whilst enhancing the natural and built heritage of Galway City.

“Galway City Council and ARUP with support from Connect the Dots would like to invite everyone in Galway City’s community to have a say in how Galway City’s parks, woodlands, beaches could be protected and improved.”

“Local knowledge and feedback about the city’s parks, woodlands, and beaches and how they can be improved is vital in the development of this Strategy.”

“Where feasible and beneficial, suggestions received during the public consultation will be incorporated into the Green Spaces strategy.

You can complete a short survey on the plans, which is available both online and in hard copy in city libraries. I

t’s a chance for people to speak about how you use the parks, woodlands and beaches in the city and how they may be improved.

Public feedback can be given through these online surveys up until June 4, and are available separately for adults, or for young people.

Three workshops will also be held in Galway City between May 21 – 30 for people to get more information, and deliver more detailed feedback in person.
