Foulksmills – Muileann na Fúca, is a picturesque rural village in County Wexford. The village is nestled in a valley of native trees. The village is framed by a large oak tree standing at upper end and the river, the bridge and the mill at lower end of the village.
The village is located 19km from New Ross, 22km from Wexford, 29km from Enniscorthy, 38km from Rosslare Harbour and 152km from Dublin.

Foulksmills Tidy Towns bought the field and developed it into the Park. The Park was officially opened on 14th June 1987 by Councillor Jim Curtis. The Foulksmills Annual Duck Race began over 40 years ago to raise money to develop and maintain the Park. This event is still running today.

The Park is located on the banks of the river Corach. The main entrance gate is suitable for vehicles and a smaller side entrance gate is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. There are seats along the bank of the river. This is a lovely place to sit to read a book, have a picnic, paddle in the water, or watch the world go by.

The Park is on 2 levels: the upper level has a tarmac surface, a picnic area, outdoor fitness equipment and the bandstand. The lower level is a large green area with a path around the perimeter. It has sensory musical equipment for everyone of all ages and abilities to enjoy. The Park has a large bug hotel made from recycled pallets, mug bug hotels, log piles, fairy doors and bird boxes. The village has a Little Free Library.

The village secured funding from Town and Village Renewal. The project includes: an e-car charging station in the park, new picnic tables (wheelchair accessible), a new website for the village, landscaping of the park and installing play and sensory equipment.

Co. Wexford’s first blueway, from Little Sea, along the Bannow Drive received funding in 2021. This will see a waterway open on the river Corach all the way to Foulksmills.
