Its well worth a visit :

THE JFK Arboretum, located just a few miles from New Ross, is to get a new playground.

The contract has been awarded to Galway based company, Creative Play Solutions. The work will involve a full upgrade of the play area. The current play area was constructed in 1996 and remains one of the popular focal points for families with young children visiting the arboretum

Re The maze last time I was there it was gone, But was re planted with very small plants and large posts and wire fencing for it to grow into.
Why they didn't leave the old maze in place till the new one grows my kids will have grown up by that time

If you are looking for a Kennedy Park type location , then Woodstock Gardens Inistioge is next best .

It has a small playground as well . Car Park barrier cost €4 and thats it .

If you check youtube you may find some videos of the location
