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.

It is nice place to chill by yourself or with anybody. Next to the river you can't hear the traffic jam, lots and colorful roses (Spring time) nice places to sit and enjoy the view. There is more but not the less.

FREE museum which charts the history of Cork city and county, its culture, politics, civil strife, and it's people - lovely exhibit on the travelling people of Ireland.

We had a coffee from the cafe and sat on a bench while watching the Autumn leaves falling all around us. Nice to lose yourself in nature for a while.

A pleasant park and green area, just to the northwest of Cork City centre. Playground, walks and some riverside scenes.

Nice for walks, family gatherings and very big playground for kids. You would think you are in the countryside and not in the middle of a city.

Short walk from city centre, lovely gardens and river side, howeve very tiny for the 'Park'. It take us about 20 minutes walk to complete a circle. Would be recomended for parents with yanger kids, and not much to do for teens, I had 13 & 15 y.o. boys at that time. Todlers can entertain themselfs with newly build playground.... More
