We go to the park to stake, walk, run, for the playground, to play in the river. It's an amazing amenity and a credit to the county council. The wildflower beds are spectacular in summer time. There needs to be investment in public toilets there,...More

Park for kids and plenty of open space. Parking is free and if the weather is good there's usually someone selling ice cream & drinks.

If you have a dog, you cannot beat the regional park. Lots of paths but just as many trails. The river lee and the canrls offer loads of splashing fun for 2 and 4 legged friends!

This was really a special treat since Ireland is so depauperate of trees especially an accessible assemblage resembling a forest. It was a breathe of fresh air!

Anyone can use the pitches informally, however if you are a club then you need to email parkusage (at) corkcoco ie for details. Some of the pitches are leased for 11 months to clubs.
