Welcome to Cherrywood

Nestled between the mountains and sea, Cherrywood represents a fresh, new way of thinking for how we live in Ireland.  

With 3 parks totalling 82 acres and over 5km of roads and cycle paths already in place, the new town of Cherrywood is taking shape.  

Come see us and you will discover a flourishing environment which is literally a breath of fresh air.

 

The Cherrywood parkland development will feature 3 new public parks (Tully, Ticknick & Beckett) over 82 acres.

The parks will be home to most of the 3,000 mature trees which will be planted in Cherrywood, and will also include sports fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, outdoor gyms and walking tracks. Walking trails from Ticknick Park will connect with the Dublin Mountain Way which spans from Shankhill to Tallaght, encompassing approximately 40 km of trails.’  

Hines-owned lands will provide for 4 new schools (2 primary and 2 secondary).  Planning permission for the first primary school, next to Tully Park, has already been granted.’

All monies raised will go DIRECTLY to equip the new Paediatric Playground and will make a direct difference to the lives of children at the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH), now and in the future.

The Paediatric Family-Centred Rehabilitation (PAEDS) Programme at the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) is the only specialist rehabilitation service for children and young people in Ireland up to the age of 18, presenting with a range of acquired neurological conditions requiring complex specialised rehabilitation.  The Programme provides rehabilitation services to children and young people following an acquired brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury or limb absence.

Family-centred care is the cornerstone of the PAEDS Programme at the NRH, with our specialist Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) working with each family throughout their child's rehabilitation journey.

The ultimate goal being to support each child’s reintegration into family, school and community life to the greatest extent possible. 

Play brings a wealth of benefits that can positively impact on many of these areas.

Physically, play enables children to gain gross and fine motor control and to practice and refine these skills. Regular physical activity promotes a healthy attitude towards nutrition and physical well-being. Cognitively, play stimulates memory, imagination, concentration, and creativity. Play provides a vehicle for the child to explore ideas, question, predict and solve problems. Linguistically, play leads to the development of verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Children will broaden their understanding of the world by making sense of their experiences through language. Emotionally, play enables children to name, recognise and talk about their feelings.

When children are able to do this, they are better able to cope in times of stress, react appropriately to difficult situations and interact with their peers. 

Furthermore play in the outside playground plus the indoor soft playroom will allow patients to participate and engage with their brothers/sisters in play activities that are geared towards their individual level of need and ability.
