It's a very peaceful and calm park near the University College Cork. Great place to have a great time. Make sure to check out Daly's "shaky" bridge near by!

We visit from Madrid every year, and this park is always on the must do list of the kids. I do not know why, but they love it and therefore it is to be commended. Clean and well maintained, it is a childs delight.
