The Sensory Garden was started by the Men’s Group in Newbridge Family Resource Centre in 2017. The men wanted to have an inclusive space for all the community to use. The garden is divided into five different geographical areas based on the surrounding areas: The Curragh, Athgarvan, The Ring of Roseberry, Milltown and Newbridge Town Centre.

We are delighted to have an outdoor space that the community can benefit from. A tremendous amount of work has gone into the project and we so thankful to everyone for their input.
