St Anne’s Park is a 270 acre public park that previously formed part of a 500 acre estate developed by the Guinness family. The estate originally consisted of a large mansion with landscaped gardens that contained a number of stone follies. While the mansion was lost to fire in 1943, the follies and garden buildings, dating from 1838-1904, have survived. Twelve of the historic follies were conserved (Howley Hayes Architects on behalf of DCC) in 2017, including repairs, works to restore historic details, improve access and public safety.
