“Nothing special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I have seen City parks all over the world and this is nothing special.

It's nice that it exists but little has been done with it. Perhaps the City Council see it as a liability instead of an asset, the grass is cut but there is nothing here for a tourist from out of town.

“Tourists Beware”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

It's like a big garden (with a load of drunks and yobs)

Nothing special. Not too bad for a stroll,in the middle of the day but avoid if late in the day as it is a haven for drunks and junkies.

Not a tourist attraction.

“Great playground, duck pond”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a lovely park. The cork museum is in the grounds. There is a nice walk by the river, and a great playground with swings for children.

“great park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

great to walk around this park and fantastic facilities for children. The musuem is not open on a Sunday but there is a great cafe along side to visit. The walk is lovely especially by the River Lee and the pond
