What a perfect little park!! It's so well kept and fabulous views out of Cobh. We were treated to a small orchestra in the band stand and really nice weather but such a great treasure to use in the town.

Whilst in Cobh we thought we would walk up to the JFK Memorial Park. Quite a walk, but well worth the effort. Not very large, but quite informative, and with stunning views over the harbour.

Lovely park in the center of town on the waterfront. Playground for the children. A few sculptures to enjoy and well as a pretty setting to relax and watch the boats go by.
