Sculptural Bliss
Aug 2021
We try to get to Cork as often as we can and had heard of Fritzgerald Park but never visited it. This time we took a walk out there (one could take a bus) and we were delighted we made the effort. Beautifully located on the banks of the Lee there is lots to be seen here: rose garden, specimen trees, pond, bridges, childrens' playground, lovely walks and picnic areas. But for me the highlight was the wonderful collection of sculptures (many by Seamus Murphy 1907-75) - among my favourites were Dreamline and Michael Collins - the beautiful stone face (dreamline) looks as if it could do with cleaning and conservation - it is a real beauty and the bronzes add a whole other dimension to the park.
Next time we hit Cork we will do a Cork Heritage History Trail which takes in the various Seamus Murphy pieces to be found in the city.

Lovely park to walk around and quiet enough for me to sit and read my book in a picturesque area. Will be back!

Absolutely Superb!

What a lovely treasure this park is! Spacious and picturesque, it is a haven in an urban place.
You can come on your own but like me come with grandchildren and oh how fantastic it is! There’s a huge wooden fort with sandpit and other things so you couldn’t ask for more.
Plus there’s a lovely pond with ducks!
Highly recommended

Nice place for a walk

Very pretty green space in Cork. A very well maintained city park. I was disappointed the museum wasn’t open when I was there, but I did enjoy walking around and through the park. With a cafe there as well, it’s definitely a place you could spend at least half a day, if not more.
