A new urban forest in Dublin

The urban forest will grow within Dublin’s Darndale Park. The goal is to provide the community with a green space to spend time together, enjoying nature and learning more about it. To fully embrace this sense of inclusion and unity, the forest will be planted in the shape of a donut, where the trees will represent the outer ring.

Dublin, renowned for its rich history and vibrant culture, is now preparing to add another gem to its crown—a unique urban forest set to bloom within Darndale Park. This upcoming addition is not just about planting trees; it’s about cultivating a sense of community, fostering connections, and improving the environment.


The Vision of the Dandale Donut

The primary goal behind this project is clear—to provide the local community with a nurturing green space that transcends mere aesthetics. The design concept of shaping the forest as a donut symbolizes inclusivity and unity. The outer ring of trees signifies the collective strength and togetherness of the community, enveloping a central space where people can congregate, play, learn, and bask in the embrace of nature.


Imagine a verdant oasis nestled within the heart of the city, offering respite from the hustle and bustle—a place where families gather for picnics, friends meet for leisurely strolls, and individuals seek solace amidst the soothing whispers of leaves.


Embracing Community Involvement: Adopt a Tree

One of the most compelling aspects of this project is the invitation extended to everyone to actively participate by adopting a tree. Through this initiative, individuals can forge a personal connection with the forest, nurturing it as it grows and contributing to the sustainable future of their community. Interested participants can easily access the adoption link, thereby becoming an integral part of the Dandale Donut’s legacy.

The Uforest Initiative

The Dandale Donut project is part of a larger initiative, promoted by Uforest. This European project seeks to spearhead innovation and knowledge dissemination in the realm of urban forestry. Its overarching goal is to accelerate the green transition of cities by leveraging nature-based solutions and sustainable practices.

European Urban Forest Week

Set against the backdrop of the #EuropeanUrbanForestWeek, this ambitious project is one of four groundbreaking endeavors slated to launch across four different European cities: Dublin, Milan, Barcelona, and Brasov. The week-long event, scheduled for the first week of December, promises a tapestry of initiatives aimed at transforming urban landscapes into thriving green ecosystems.
