St Stephen’s Green (Irish: Faiche Stiabhna) is a public park in the city centre of Dublin, Ireland. The current landscape of the park was designed by William Sheppard. St Stepehn’s officially opened to the public on 27 July 1880, although the park itself has been around since 1664 (prior to 1880 it was only accessible to the wealthy residents who owned plots around the park). At 22 acres (89,000 m2), it is the largest of the parks in Dublin’s main Georgian garden squares. Others include nearby Merrion Square and Fitzwilliam Square. [source]
