THE IMMEDIATE AREA HAS BEEN REDEVELOPED
The large structure had been demolished to make way for the new scenic riverside park within an area of the town now known as the Abbey Quarter.
Marrying the old with the new, the riverside garden leads you through the former St Francis’ Abbey Brewery and into a modern skatepark that has been designed for and by Kilkenny’s own skateboarding community who now have a park of their own
The project provides a riverside walk from the Tea Houses at Bateman Quay to Greensbridge, with a temporary walkway provided in the area of the planned new Urban Park around St. Francis Abbey.
The Riverside Garden project incorporates the newly completed skate park, which opened to the public on May 1. The amenity is already well used by skaters of all abilities and ages
