Vote for The Westfields Wetlands

Can you please do your best for The Westfield Wetlands:

We have an Oasis right in the Heart of the City

With your help we can transform it to something already special to something really SPECTACULAR!!!

We want to further improve and enhance our Wetlands. We do have a vision; to establish a welcome retreat in the heart of Limerick, away from the hustle and bustle of city living. The idyllic Riverside Parkland, when completed, will provide angling, boating as well as a picturesque walking and cycling route just minutes from the City Centre.
