View of a small building in Phoenix Park, Dublin, in Ireland. The park covers 1,760 acres and is thought to be the largest municipal park in Europe boasting landscaped gardens, ornamental lakes and large grasslands. It was traditionally assumed that the park was named after the mythical creature the Phoenix, however it is more likely that the park was originally named ‘Fionn Uisce’ which means clear water and refers to a spring which runs through the grounds.
