Balgaddy Community Green
July 15 &16, 2022
Friday: 5PM-9PM
Saturday: 11AM - 3PM

 

Hello there! A week-long transformation is headed to the Balgaddy community near Dublin, Ireland in July 2022, and we want to hear from you!
 
The goal is to re-envision the grassy community area next to the Balgaddy playground and sport courts in a 2-day, community-led placemaking event that will help residents, small business, and nonprofits get creative with their neighborhood space. Using this survey to guide the design, some potential changes could include the arts, greenery and landscaping, a pop-up market,  and opportunities for community gathering in what is now an underutilized lawn. This trial will help create a safe, welcoming neighborhood space for all ages and backgrounds and will incorporate the current resident's vision for Balgaddy. Additionally, we hope to test some ideas and get feedback that will be incorporated into the long-term vision of Balgaddy.
 

Together with you, The Better Block Foundation and Microsoft are working to bring your ideas to life and make Balgaddy a more vibrant place to live, work, and gather as a community. Please fill out the survey below and share with anyone else you think may be interested. Your opinion matters and will directly shape the direction of the project! Survey closes April 1, 2022. Please reach out with any questions to Kristin Leiber at kristin@betterblock.org
