Located in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown, South Dublin, the future community of Cherrywood Village will include over 1,300 homes, three public parks and over 50,000 sq/ft of retail and civic amenities as well as primary and post-primary schools.
Green and blue infrastructure constitutes a key element of Cherrywood Village Masterplan with the opportunity to create a very well-connected village adjacent to the Luas Tram Line into Central Dublin and close to the Wicklow Mountains and the sea.
This approach to the landscape design includes strategic Greenways that form generous walking, jogging and cycle routes which connect residents to existing parks, the village centre and Luas Tram stops.
Other spaces in the masterplan include Pocket Parks that provide local amenity close to people’s front doors. Each of these will have a different theme, such as Woodland or Productive Planting, but all will incorporate natural play and seating to encourage residents to engage with the natural world.
The planting design is structured around resilient typologies that feed off existing wildlife corridors, managing the site water run-off through a sequence of rain gardens, and incorporating a wide range of pollinators as part of the ‘All Ireland Pollinator Plan’.
