A new Chinese “Suzhou” Garden has opened in Dublin to celebrate the Dublin Chinese New Year Festival.
Suzhou is a city in China that is known as “The Garden City” or “The Venice of the East“.

Unfortunately, St. Anne’s Park does not have any “official” trails. You are offered a great number of different paths, each one will offer you a surprise of a pond, a stream, a rose garden garden, or an “old ruin” – one of the ten garden follies.
One “unofficial” trail has been recommended by J. Shannon, the Park’s Superintendent – The Saint Anne’s Trail (detailed information on this trail is published on Clontarf Online website).
The map above will help you orientate yourself (click on the picture below to view and print a large map of Saint Anne’s park).
