Scoodoos are so excited about the Scoodoos Sculpture Tree Trail in St Stephen’s Green.

Ten Scoodoos sculptures will make up the trail, each one with its own name. At each stop on the trail you can learn about trees and experience St Stephens Green in a new way. As you go around the trail you can collect the names of the Scoodoos and enter the competition on this website and have a chance to win a Scoodoos Sculpture.

The Sculptures for the trail were made by participants on The New Growth Project course run by The Garden School in Marlay Park in Dublin.

The sculpture tree trail will coincide with National Tree Week – organised by the Tree Council of Ireland

Here is some information about St Stephen’s Green

Ireland’s best known Victorian public park. Re-opened by Lord Ardilaun in 1880 for the citizens of Dublin. This 9 hectare / 22 acre park has been maintained in the original Victorian layout with extensive perimeter tree and shrub planting, spectacular spring and summer Victorian bedding. The herbaceous border also provides colour from early spring to late autumn. Sanctuary from inclement weather can be obtained in the Victorian lakeside shelter or in the Victorian Swiss shelters in the center of the park.

Over 3.5 km of pathways are accessible for all users. The waterfall and Pulham rock work on the western side of the green are worth of a visit likewise the ornamental lake which provides a home for waterfowl and a garden for the visually impaired. A number of sculptures are located throughout the green. A children’s playground is a popular attraction of the park. Lunchtime concerts are performed during the summer months.
