St Anne’s Park is a 240 acres public park situated between Raheny and Clontarf, suburbs on the north-side of Dublin, Ireland. It is owned and managed by Dublin City Council.
The park, the second largest municipal park in Dublin, is part of a former 202 hectares (500 acres) estate assembled by members of the Guinness family, descendants of Sir Arthur Guinness, founder of the famous brewery, beginning with Benjamin Lee Guinness in 1835 (the largest municipal park is nearby (North) Bull Island, also shared between Clontarf and Raheny). Bisected by a small river, the park features an artificial pond and a number of follies, a rose garden, a fine collection of trees with walks, a playground, cafe and recreational facilities including extensive GAA and soccer playing fields, tennis and golf.
