Musgrave Park

Stockman's Lane,

Musgrave Park contains two bowling greens and Gaelic football, hurling and camogie pitches. It also includes a bottle bank.

Musgrave Park is also popular with both walkers and joggers and contains a Highway to Health route.

Musgrave Park opened to the public in 1924. The park is named after Sir Henry Musgrave, who lived in nearby Drumglass House, and who donated the land used to build the park.


We have installed public access defibrillators for park users at Musgrave Park.

Award nomination

Musgrave Park has been awarded the Green Flag Award every year from 2010 to 2019. This award recognises the best open spaces in the UK.

Other attractions

Musgrave Park also contains an innovative therapy garden, which was developed with the support of several nearby schools. The garden combines different therapeutic features in one space to improve the quality of life, development and wellbeing of local residents.  A 'whispering' wall is the central focus of the garden, which is fitted with acoustic equipment and a mosaic finish to encourage sensory, stimulatory and interactive play.

Other features include:
• a story circle and meeting area
• a willow tunnel
• a sand play area
• bed for planting designed with disabled access
• musical instruments
• community artwork
• play equipment.

The therapy garden was made possible through the support from the European Union's European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - PEACE III.
