Limerick Civic Trust has updated and refurbished two information panels in People’s Park. The two information panels, one near the Limerick City Gallery of Art entrance and the other by the Pery Gates on Upper Mallow Street, provide information on the history of the park and what can be found in it.
The original panels were in need of updating as they pointed to a number of trees which were lost during Storm Darwin in 2014. Limerick Civic Trust worked with Michael Sheehan and his team of park rangers to identify and catalogue over 120 trees in People’s Park. Instead of replacing like with like, the Trust used the opportunity to enhance the information panels visually and update the historical information on the panels pertaining to the Pery family who has contributed to the public park since the 1870’s.
The information panels are now available for everyone to see and discover more about the Park.
