New Street Garden Project

31 05 2014

The New Street Gardens project is about bringing greenery and life back into a vacant and disused space in Waterford City. New St. was chosen in particular for a two reasons. First is its proximity to the main st in Waterford ie Michael St.

Secondly it happens to lie in a part of Waterford, which for a number of reasons in recent years has progressively deteriorated and come to look neglected. Building a park in an empty lot on New St. would be a great start in regenerating the area. We would encourage people living and working in the area to get involved at different stages of the garden’s development.

This sense of ownership will, we believe, generate a positivity and pride in the community and city. We would encourage a nationwide interest in New Street Gardens to show what can be achieved in bringing green areas and life into an unused urban space, an idea which can be replicated right across the country. Also, we would hope the project will raise a positive profile of Waterford as a city which is innovative and progressive thinking in terms of dealing with the relevant issue of how to re-energise vacant and disused spaces.

In terms of structures, we are building a performance stage and a film screening area in the gardens. We also are inviting gardening groups to get involved and show how to build and tend a community garden. We would like New St. Gardens to be used as a platform for interested individuals to get involved and collaborate on what really is a very interesting and worthwhile project. We welcome a submission of ideas on what people envisage for the space and look for any willing and able volunteers to help with the project.

Any further queries please contact Edel Tobin on (087) 7624397.

New Community Tourism Initiative

30 04 2014

Waterford City Council recently launched a new Community Tourism Initiative for the Diaspora which seeks to build on the legacy of The Gathering 2013. The Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring TD, officially launched the initiative, a joint partnership between Fáilte Ireland, IPB Insurance and the 34 Local Authorities, to provide an annual fund of €1m over the next three years to support up to 700 local community-based events and festivals each year around the country.

Commenting on the initiative, Waterford City & County Manager Michael Walsh said “Every year we support many festivals, facilitate forums and engage with citizens to support them in community events. We want to develop our communities to make them sustainable to live in, give people a sense of pride and belonging and encourage visitors and commerce.”
