When you go down to Emerald Park on July 5th.. you’re sure of a big surprise!

Emerald Park are delighted to host their own Teddy Bear Picnic fundraiser in collaboration with their wonderful charity partners, the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.

On July 5th, grab your fluffy (or furry), friends, as any teddy big or small, is welcome to spend the day at Emerald Park! On the day there will be picnic packs, colouring competitions, and fluffy friends galore!

All guests can enjoy the Emerald Park x Jack and Jill Teddy Bear Picnic once they purchase an entry ticket to the park on July 5th.

Teddy Bears Picnic first started in 2021 by the inspiring mother and daughter duo Evelyn Reilly and Jess from Kidz@Play Maynooth as the foundation is very close to their hearts. Their dedication to raising funds for Jack and Jill in support of their friend is unparalleled and they are true community heroes.

“The children were all bringing in their own teddy bears, and we had a series of activities, like walks within the grounds of the school, a bear hunt, story times and games. It finished with the children bringing their teddies on a picnic. The families then donated what they could. It was such an amazing day, and we plan to do this every year for Jack and Jill.”

– Quote from Evelyn and Jess from the Liffey Champion, July 3rd, 2021. Read the full interview here.

This year marks the fourth consecutive year of the annual Jack & Jill Teddy Bear Picnic, and Emerald Park is delighted to support in any way they can.
