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!
