Dublin Ohio is home to one of the best known festivals seen in Central Ohio and the Columbus Metro area outside of the state fair. The Dublin Irish Festival is a party which pays homage to the city and its residents with Irish roots!
The park which hosts the annual event is Coffman Park, in Dublin. However in recent years the event has become so popular that it has become well known for its crowds! The City of Dublin has a solution! It has just negotiated the purchase of an additional 14 acres to expand the park, according to the city finance director, expansion has been in the pipeline for years.
During its meeting Feb. 17, city council approved the $3.8-million purchase of 13.9 acres that is bordered by Perimeter Drive, Commerce Parkway and Post Road.
This is exciting news for Dublin residents and Festival goers, however with tightened budgets the city doesn’t, in the short term plan much for the land. In the long run it has plans for a new pond, bicycle path and more.
This is certainly a story which will be watched with interest – in particular around the time of this years Irish Festival!
