is situated in the old townland of Greenhills and is located to the south of the Limekiln estate. It is the second largest park in Dublin, after the Phoenix Park, and the largest in the area administered by South Dublin County Council (SDCC). Tymon is a particularly well-developed local park, with the local River Poddle and its associated man-made lakes providing a backdrop. The M50 motorway splits the Greenhills side of the park from Kilnamanagh and the Tymon North estate (both Tallaght). A smaller park, Greenhills Park, colloquially known as "Comp Field," is also administered by the SDCC and is used almost exclusively for football.
There is also a well-known Catholic church, the Church of the Holy Spirit. It is particularly famous for its verdigren copper roof, which has been said to be reminiscent of the Sydney Opera House. The church stands alongside a local community centre, which was completed in the 1990s, and the clubhouse of local football club Greenhills AFC, formerly Greenhills Boy's AFC.
Greenhills is home to a number of schools, including, at primary level, St Paul's Junior and Senior Girl's National Schools and St Peter's Boy's National School, and at secondary level St Paul's Secondary (girls) and Greenhills College VEC (boys). Greenhills College is also a key centre for Post Leaving Certificate courses and adult education in general.
Greenhills also has a large Scouting unit (65th Greenhills), which runs various activities throughout the year, including camping, hiking and pioneering. The scout troop are the current holders of the Montpellier Scout County Shield. They currently have over 100 youth members and over 20 adult members.
