Fitzgerald's Park is just 10 minutes walk from the Cork City. There are lovely trees, river views and flowers and a very nice Riverview Cafe, with great coffee, overlooking the river. It is a nice place to walk on a dry day.

Fitzgerald Park is a gem in the city. There is a lovely playground for children. It is great place for a family day out. The park is very well maintained. Can't believe I didn't know it was there before now.

This place is beautiful even in the fall, with lovely trails and public art. The playground opened in 2015 and has so much to do, it kept my 8 and 10 year old busy for two hours.

I used to prepare for 10K run here and also for walking just to be out of the city crowded. The park is in city but feels like out.
