Poppintree Park Native Tree Trail
The Poppintree Park Native Tree Trail is the third tree trail in the city and the first on the Northside.
The new Native Tree Trail in Poppintree Park is an action within the Ballymun Biodiversity Action Plan and is a partnership between Ballymun Regeneration and Dublin City Council.
The Native Tree Trail will help introduce park users to a selection of Irelands native trees. It is a fun and interactive way for people, and in particular young people, to learn about the trees that surround us, the history and folklore they invoke and the homes they create for wildlife, not to mention the air they clean.
What to do:
Print out copy of the Native Tree Trail from PDF below . . .
Get crayons . . .
Head to the lovely Poppintree Park and follow the instructions within the Tree Trail booklet . . .
