Fitzgerald's Park home to Cork
Public Museum on the Mardyke is just a short distance from Cork City
centre and the University College Cork. Fitzgerald's Park where the
visitor and local alike can enjoy a riverside walk beside the famous
river Lee. Fitzgerald's Park named after a previous Lord Mayor of Cork in
1901, Edward Fitzgerald, offers a quite retreat from the hustle and
bustle of the city, with its beautiful tree lined avenues, brimming
flower beds and rose garden to its many statues and sculptures and the
large central fountain, this 18 acre park is a wonderful treat. Its
sculptures include one of Michael Collins by Seamus Murphy.
Park is a quiet haven, which has a playground for the children and a cafe
to enjoy the view of the river Lee and across to the gardens and houses
of the Sunday's Well area.
