This riverside park is beautifully situated but lacked due attention over the last twenty years. It has recently received some capital and TLC and the end result is superb and is now a lovely spot fo relaxing. Of particular note are the area adjacent to the museum and the children's' playground. The riverside cafe is worthy of a visit.

nice for walks with the family. Play ground nice, never got to the museum. Good location and centrally placed for easy hops in city centre. Within walking distance (mostly uphill) to Cork City Gaol with easier trek to Lifetime lab

This is an oasis in Cork city and there is much of interest. For children, there is a playground while the Cork museum is also here and is definitely worth visiting.

I haven't been back to Fitzgerald Park in Cork city in many a long year, and what a lovely surprise! We were lucky to take a stroll in beautiful early Autumn sunshine, so the beautiful rose garden and leafy trees looked their best. The lovely modern sculptures donated by a winner of the Chelsea Flower show ( Diarmud Gavin?) was... More

It is close the university walk and also the campus which are both fantastic viewing opportunities The museum is located ideally in the grounds also. Great... More

The playground here is great for kids. Because its in the city and in a park there are no teenagers loitering and no vandalism! The playground is suitable for most ages with smaller kiddie play area as well. The mirror tree is always a fascination and during the weekends when the bean bag things are out around the pond, great... More
