Great park for all ages in a lovely location beside the river. Lots of friendly locals and their dogs on the day we were there. Good little cafe as well.

Great place just to stroll around and chat with a few folks, meet a couple of friendly dogs or two and just relax and enjoy nature.

this is a perfect place to relax and chill out on a summers day yet its big enough to have the big kids area where everything to have fun is there bring along a picknick and remember to bin your trash or bring it home don't destroy this wonderful free area by leaving trash there.

Museum is free and has a range of stuff related to Cork and Ireland, be it sporting achievements or the formation of the nation of Ireland as a Republic. Also it regularly if not always has large exhibitions such as the trenches of WWI or Traveller Culture

The park is kept very nicely and our kids love it. Our favourite spot is the green area up by the shaky bridge. Nice for a picnic especially when the sun in shining.

When you are in Cork and need to relax go to the park. The park has everything, and is it beautiful in Spring and Summer - flowering bulbs and trees.

I really like city parks where you can stroll around and see people take a break from urban life. This park fits the bill. It is beautifully laid out and looked after. It was a perfect venue for a recent comedy/street artist festival.

This is such a stunning place. So many different things. Play area for children, coffee shop, museum, and most important lots and lots of stunning flowers. The trees along the river bank draw you even deeper into the park. Some trees have twisted in such unusual shape due to the winds in winter. A day trip with a picnic is... More

Nice park for Cork, on the water, easy parking on weekends, otherwise you need a parking disc. Good for a run or get the kids out, the playground is more for little ones and gets really full when the sun is out. The cafe is nice, has ice cream, coffee and cakes. The downside is the dog poo, nor sure... More
