Park Ranger at Hartstown Park ‘must be restored’ – Local Councilor Patrick Nulty calls on Fingal Council to reverse park ranger changes
Labour Party Councilor Patrick Nulty has called on Fingal County Council to “immediately review changes made to the park ranger service inDublin15 and to take stock of serious issues to have arisen following the imposition of the new regime by council management”.
Cllr. Nulty noted “The number of park rangers inDublin15 has been reduced from 7 to 4 and they have moved to a floating presence across more parks. AtHartstownParkin particular this is simply not working”.
“We need a full time park ranger atHartstownParkand in my view atMillenniumParktoo. I have been inundated with complaints from local residents about the deterioration ofHartstownParksince the changes”.
“I have no doubt that these changes were driven by good intentions but the feedback I’m getting on the ground is that its not working. The council need to respond to the reality of the situation and reverse some of the recent changes”.
“Local clubs have been the subject of growing problems with anti-social behaviour at evening times and there has been a rise in litter and public drinking”.
“The park ranger service acted at an early warning system and had a good relationship with the Gardai – a floating presence means a park ranger is only there for two hours a day in practice”.
Cllr. Nulty has raised the issue with the council and will be raising the issue at the next full council meeting in July.
