I like to run in enclosed parks. This one has a lot of walkway to do so. It's easy to get to from a main road, but once you're thee it's very tucked away. Family friendly, safe and clean. Must visit

Beautiful park! I've read that this has been a huge community draw in recent years and I can see why. The grounds and river are gorgeous. It is very well maintained and was great for the kids to explore. My son went nearly every day during our month in Cork.

Fitzgeralds park is close to the north side of the city and runs alongside the famous river lee as a kid I loved to go here would recommend to anyone with a family and this park has major events taking place every other week

My parents and I took my nephew here recently. A lot has been done to the place, including the Sky Garden, but overall it is still a bit grim. The playground area could do with a lot of work and looks shabby and dirty. The rose garden is nice and on a nice day it is nice to sit and... More

A great place to go to relax, take a walk, have a picnic and its only minutes from Cork City Centre. Beautiful gardens, walk along the river and there is a band stand with live music too (certain times only - not everyday). I think there is a museum here too. We visited on a few sunny days this summer... More

Seemed the entire town was here on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Lot's of things going on including cricket, live music and some prime people watching. Nice place just to hang out and have a snack and take it easy for a while.

Only aproximately 15 minutes from Cork's centre, a nice park by the river Lee. Lot's of green, a big palyground for kids. On the site there is also Cork's public museum (free entry) and a very nice cafe with good snacks. Combine it with the park of University of Cork (UCC) which is also very close and offers some nice... More

As we are in a heatwave in Cork at the moment, Fitzgeralds Park looks lovely at the moment with plenty of lovely flowers and roses. For the last year they have been building and upgrading the park. The park looks fantastic! Saw the Sky Garden. Was expecting to see it hanging. A bit of a let down but the rest... More
