Dublin City Council has installed lockers which allow you to borrow sports equipment for free at Mount Bernard Park. You simply sign up through the BoxUp app and borrow what you want for up to three hours. There are footballs, basketballs, tennis balls and rackets, kettlebells, speedminton etc.
Every park in Dublin should have them! People should be able to go to their local park to get some exercise, try different sports and have some fun without having to buy all the equipment for all of them. I’ll be pushing for these to be installed in The Bogies, Ashington Park, Griffith Park and, obviously, Phoenix Park!
