Opened in 2005 and located just 1 km from Ennis town centre, the Sports and Amenity Park at Lees Road is set in 134 acres of feature-rich, biodiverse woodland and parkland. The Park was renamed in memory of Sgt. John O’Sullivan, former President of Clare Community Games.
Within the 134 acres, there are a variety of marked looped walks and woodland trails. Information boards in the car park give details of the flora and fauna in the Park.
The Park is a busy hub for the people of Ennis and Clare whether they are serious athletes, participating in team games, enjoying a leisurely stroll or watching their children in the playground.
