Fitzgerald Park has two great pedestrian bridges,river views and walks, a nice free museum dedicated to the city's history,interesting public art, and lots of kids running around, If the weather is good, it is worth visiting this park.

While this park is under renovation, there is still a great space to relax. Beautiful trees, a walk by the riverside and a rose garden. THere is also a little cafe there for food.

This lovely park is very much worth a visit as it is located close to the city and on the river bank. Nice place to relax and picnic, weather permitting and there are times when there is music and concerts there also.

Spent a lovely summer afternoon here, strolling along the waterfront. It is a fantastic amenity, very near the city centre. I only stumbled on it by accident, but would highly recommend tourists and local alike to take a visit here, with a little picnic and a book. With the right weather, you'll leave calm and relaxed, all without spending a... More

Only about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Cork, this is the perfect area for a quiet stroll away from the hustle of the city, but close enough to rejoin the city life in a few short minutes. Lovely walkways and waterways to just relax and breathe a little.

I loved that we were able to go to the park have a walk around the gardens and I really enjoyed the museum, surprisingly as did the 5 year old we had with us. Loads to do and see here!

This is such an under utilised free facility. There is everything in this park from a pond to flowers, trees, a museum, a band stand famous works of art by Irish designers. A huge playground for kids. Lovely gardens, walks and a genuine unique place to see.

Lovely Park however the reason we went was it was the only playground in the city centre and it was recommend to us for young kids, when we got there it was all dug up and under construction. The playground looks like it's going to be much bigger and better when finished We went to another part after the kids... More
