ATLANTIC POND


ATLANTIC POND


Back in the good old days, middle of the last century, the Atlantic Pond, close to the main GAA stadium, was a handy destination for car-less families seeking relief from the heat of the city and many a picnic of sandwiches and tea was enjoyed on its green grassy banks.



The pond deteriorated after that but in recent years, the City Council have done much to restore it. The birds are back and enjoying life on the clean water and there are paths around the lake and besides you have the long walks on the Marina close at hand.



The birds aren’t quite as plentiful as they are in the Lough but today’s visit indicated that this pleasant spot is attracting families once again and quite a few walkers and runners.
